Guardians and Conservators
Guardians and conservators play a critical role in caring for an incapacitated individual where no durable power of attorney or advanced medical directive has been put in place. Sometimes, individuals do have a durable power of attorney or advanced medical directive but the documents do not give sufficient power to an agent. In either situation, a guardian and conservator may be necessary to protect the health, safety, and funds, of the incapacitated person.
The appointment of a guardian or conservator requires a Court order. From filing the initial request for appointment to helping prepare accountings, our firm has experience in all aspects of the guardian/conservator process.
