Guardianships And Conservatorships
When a loved one suffers from a serious medical condition or illness, the burden often falls on loved ones to manage that person’s day-to-day tasks. From paying bills to choosing the right health care, there are a significant number of decisions that must be made.
In order to accomplish many of these tasks, a loved one often must obtain a guardianship or conservatorship. These are a court-appointed legal arrangement in which one person can make legal and financial decisions on behalf of someone who can no longer do so.
