Guardianships & Conservatorships

When someone is unable to take care of themselves, their family may need special legal authorization to handle their personal and financial matters. This might include a child whose parents are away or incapacitated or an adult who has fallen ill or has diminished mental capacity. While it might seem reasonable to everyone in the family to handle that person’s bills and manage their finances, banks and other third parties can’t legally listen to family members without the proper legal authority.

Guardianships & Conservatorships

Guardianships and conservatorships allow family members to take charge as needed in a similar manner to how a parent can handle a minor child’s affairs. Ideally, you will have a plan in place before a guardianship or conservatorship is needed, but if not, we can help you go to court to complete the required legal process.
