Guardianship & Conservatorship Lawyers
If you or a loved one is incapable of managing personal, healthcare, or financial affairs, a Guardianship or Conservatorship may be necessary. A Guardian is someone appointed by the court to oversee and make decisions for an incapacitated individual regarding their personal, healthcare, medical, and housing needs. Likewise, a Conservator is someone appointed by the court to oversee and make financial decisions for an incapacitated individual.
Generally, a Guardianship and/or Conservatorship takes all decision making power away from the individual who is incapacitated; however, in some situations, the Guardianship or Conservatorship may be limited to allow the incapacitated individual to make certain decisions on their own behalf.
If you believe that a loved one may be in need of a Guardianship or Conservatorship, or have other questions regarding the Guardianship or Conservatorship process the attorneys at Murphy, Taylor, Siemens & Elliott P.C. will discuss the situation with you and guide you through the process.
