Defining What Is A Guardianship And Conservatorship

A guardianship allows for you to exercise control regarding decisions for an incapacitated adult or minor child. The idea is to attend to such individual's health and well-being. A conservatorship, on the other hand, allows for you to exercise control over an adult or child's financial circumstances. It can include paying for that individual's debts and expenses, and making certain that finances continually are available for the care of that person.

The process for establishing a guardianship or conservatorship is not simple, however. As it is important that the court appoints the right individual for such positions, there are a number of requirements.

Establishing a guardianship or conservatorship requires filing a petition with the court. It is important to prepare such petitions with care in order to specifically address the needs of the relative or friend.
