Conservatorship & Guardianship
Mental incapacity leaves elderly or disabled people vulnerable to being taken advantage of by amoral relatives, scammers, and anyone else interested in manipulating them for their own gain. A conservatorship or guardianship, therefore, might be sought in probate court when an individual is no longer capable of making financial or health care decisions due to incapacity. These two valuable estate planning tools help to extend protection for a person’s estate.
Guardianships can also be created to protect the financial and legal interests of a minor. In those situations, the individual may require the protection of a court-appointed conservator and/or guardian, who then has the authority to manage the minor’s affairs.
At the Klein Law Firm, P.C., our conservatorship & guardianship lawyers are experienced in seeking and obtaining the appointment of a conservator and/or guardian in situations when this is appropriate in Denver, Colorado. Our exceptional legal services also extend to representing the conservator and/or guardian throughout the process.
Creating A Conservatorship Or Guardianship
Adult conservatorships are typically created when a court-approved agent is needed to manage someone’s financial affairs. Before appointing a conservator, the court will look at evidence that indicates the person in question is no longer capable of ordering and regulating their own affairs, often due to illness, age, or decreased mental capacity. Psychiatrists, geriatric specialists, and other medical professionals might be consulted when determining medical cause for a conservatorship.
Because guardianships usually concern minors, the court often appoints adult guardians in cases involving trust funds. The guardianship might end once the minor reaches a certain age and is capable of managing their own financial affairs.
