Guardianship/Conservatorship, Dementia, Incapacitated Person, Protected Person

A guardian is appointed by the probate court to make medical and placement decisions for a minor (under 18 years) or adult incapacitated person (the 'protected person').  A conservator is appointed to handle the finances and pay the bills for someone who is financially incapable.  If the person is in crisis and an emergency exists a temporary guardianship or conservatorship may be appropriate.  The attorneys at Fitzwater Law have the experience and skill  to assist you and your family with your guardianship and conservatorship needs.
