A guardian is appointed by the courts to make personal and health care decisions for a person who is incapacitated.

A conservator is appointed by the courts to handle the financial affairs of an individual who is unable to do so themselves. When an individual’s assets are under conservatorship, they must be protected and only used for that individual’s benefit.

Guardianship and conservatorship proceedings can be stressful and confusing. Schromen Law, LLC works with clients to file the necessary documents with the appropriate court. If other alternatives exist, such as durable power of attorney, living trusts, or other options, Schromen Law, LLC identifies those options and works with clients to choose which best fits the unique situation at hand.
