Guardianships and conservatorships, generally, are legal structures that allow for the care for minors or adults who do not have the capacity to care for themselves. A court-appointed guardian makes decisions about non-financial matters like education, religion, and health care. A court-appointed conservator handles financial matters.
There are many circumstances that may cause you to consider a guardianship or conservatorship. Our attorneys can discuss the pros and cons with you, and ultimately draft the paperwork necessary to implement your choice.
A trust is another way to handle these issues that may be appropriate in some cases. Trusts are addressed on theÂ Wills, Trusts & Powers of Attorney page.
