Guardianships and Conservatorships

Guardianships and conservatorships are the processes by which a court appoints an individual to make decisions for another person. Each has a unique set of responsibilities, including:

  • Guardianship: A guardianship allows you to make health care decisions for a person who is unable to care for himself or herself, including adult children with special needs and minor children.
  • Conservatorship: A conservatorship appoints an individual to handle another person's finances and estate.

Health care proxies and powers of attorney are designed to help a person avoid the need for a conservator or guardian. Creating these documents is inexpensive and private and could alleviate hours of aggravation and significant expense for your loved ones.
