A guardian is appointed by a court to be responsible for the physical and financial care of a person who is considered incapacitated — either because the person (“ward”) is a child or because he or she is no longer able to care for him/herself.
Guardians have responsibilities toward their wards, including paying bills, filing income tax, providing living arrangements and health care, and accurately accounting for any payments using the ward’s asset.
A conservator is similar to a guardian, but only for financial matters. As such, a conservator administers assets for the benefit of a person who is incapacitated, but is not responsible for that person’s living arrangements, health care or well-being.
If you are already caring for a family member or considering doing so, Prime Law Group can help you complete the legal process to become a guardian or conservator. Further, they can help you proactively create a guardianship for a loved one if you ever become unable to provide care you provide now.
Likewise, if you are a stepparent, grandparent or relative of a child in need, Prime Law Group can help you seek a child guardianship.
