Guardianships and conservatorships are legal proceedings where an individual is appointed by the court to exercise some or all legal rights on behalf of a minor or incapacitated person.
There are many reasons where a guardianship or conservatorship may be appropriate. Perhaps a minor child received an inheritance or an older person has become incapacitated. Though powers of attorney are generally designed to avoid the necessity of a conservatorship there are situations where a conservatorship is necessary.
