Guardianship & Conservatorship
If proper planning has been done, a person has nominated a person they trust to care for their healthcare make their healthcare decisions in a situation when they are unable to do so for themselves in a Healthcare Power of Attorney. Similarly, they have nominated someone to make decisions regarding their finances and assets through a Durable General Power of Attorney. However, when proper planning hasn’t been done, or when a bank or medical provider is unwilling to recognize a power of attorney, a guardianship and/or conservatorship appointment may be necessary. We can meet with you to help you decide if this can be avoided and if not, can help guide you through the process.
We also handle conservatorships for minors when they receive money for settlements or inheritances and guardianships for minors when both parents voluntarily surrender parental rights.
We value your time and want to speak with you about your needs. Please fill out the form below and we will contact you shortly. Thank you.
