Court Appointed Guardian To Manage Your Affairs

What Is A Guardianship Or Conservatorship?

Next » « Previous


A guardianship is a legal arrangement in which an adult (called a "guardian" or "conservator") has the court-ordered authority and responsibility to make personal and/or financial decisions on behalf of another person.

Depending on your ability to make your own decisions, as determined by the court, a guardian may be given complete or only partial power over your affairs. For example, a decision to place you in a long-term care facility may be one decision to be made by a guardian, but you might still have a say about the type of facility in which you want to live.

The person who has a guardian may be called a "ward," an "incapacitated person," or a "conservatee."
