Do you have a loved one who can no longer manage their daily affairs, or increasingly needs assistance in doing so? Without the proper documents, a court will require guardianship or conservatorship. This is typically the last option and not preferred because of the administrative burden including a court hearing and annual reports.
A guardian is a person appointed by the court to make personal decisions for the ward, including decisions about their living arrangements and health care decisions. The ward may be a minor, a legally incapacitated individual, or a developmentally disabled person. A conservator is the person appointed by the court to manage the financial affairs of a minor or protected person.
Miracle Law has assisted many clients in getting appointed as a guardian and/or conservator. Sometimes the proceedings are contested. If you anticipate family division over the appointment, it’s important to have an attorney with experience in these proceedings.
