Conservators and Guardians are relationships appointed by a court to care for people who have lost the ability to care for themselves.
If you have a loved-one who is losing – or has lost – the ability to care for him or herself, Jewel & Stoneman, LLP can advise you on the legal avenues available to help in this situation. In a conservatorship, the court appoints an individual to manage the financial affairs of a person who is deemed incompetent to handle his or her own affairs. In a guardianship, the court appoints a guardian to make decisions about the personal care of a minor, such as where the individual will live and what kind of care they will receive. A person may have a conservator or guardian for their finances, but still be able to make their own personal decisions.
A decision to apply for a guardianship or conservatorship is never easy. You will have many questions. Jewel & Stoneman, LLP can answer those questions for you, and help you go through the process as easily as possible.
