Guardianships and Conservatorships

People are living longer than ever these days. In fact, in 2010, the average life expectancy in the United States was 78.3 years; an increase of 5 years since 1980. As a result, many adults in their elder years are relying more on family members to assist them in caring not only for themselves, but also their finances. In such events, the court may appoint a guardian to care for the incapacitated person and/or a conservator to manage the incapacitated person’s estate or assets. Although many people use these terms interchangeably, the responsibilities and requirements of each are significantly different. The attorneys at Bloch & Chapleau are skilled in the appointments of conservators and guardians, and strive to ensure that your rights and assets will be protected with dignity and respect.
