Protecting Your Loved Ones With Guardianships And Conservatorships
When a loved one is not able to care for themselves, such as an adult who is incapacitated due to illness or injury or a child who lost their parents, a guardian and conservator may be necessary to ensure their needs are met. In most cases, guardianships and conservatorships are used for incapacitated adults. Gaining the legal authority to care for a person in need or guardianship or conservatorship will require a formal court appointment, which often requires guidance from a skilled guardianship and conservatorship law attorney.
Guardianships and conservatorship appointments are important for caring for a vulnerable person, and we at Frieders & Kuhn, L.L.P., can help you pursue the appointment they need. When clients come to us throughout the Rochester area for help, we guide them through the process of resolving their legal needs while answering any questions they may have along the way.
What Is The Difference Between A Guardianship And Conservatorship?
Both of these roles involve ensuring the needs of the person subject to guardianship or conservatorship are met, but they each have different responsibilities. A guardian for the person subject to guardianship is responsible to provide personal care, such as taking care of medical needs, clothing, shelter, etc. Conservators are responsible for managing the person subject to conservatorship’s financial affairs, including property, finances, and other major assets.
