Guardianship and Conservatorships

The Probate Court appoints guardians and conservators for both minor children and adults. While circumstances are different when representing the interests of a minor child, incapacitated adults may also need to have an appointment of a guardian or conservator. The purposes of guardianships and conservatorships are different as one protects the person while the other protects the person’s assets. In some cases, both are needed and they may be contested. Our probate attorneys assist with these appointments, assist guardians with filing annual reports and help conservators open restricted bank accounts.
