Taking The Worry Out Of Guardianships And Conservatorships

At LifePath Law, we understand things don't always work out as planned. Our No. 1 priority is to help you thoroughly plan so that you won't need a guardianship or conservatorship for you or a loved one. MotherBut in the event when you do need one — a trusted estate planning and probate lawyer can make the process as painless as possible.

In California, conservatorships allow a trusted "conservator" to make financial and medical decisions on behalf of an incapacitated loved one. Guardianships are similar, but are put in place for minors under the age of 18, and are often used to care for a child and watch over assets, such as life insurance proceeds until they are old enough to access it. Our attorneys are familiar with both guardianships and conservatorships, and can help you establish one that best looks after your loved one's security.

Making Sure Your Loved Ones Are Cared For

As you go to set up your guardianship or conservatorship, the most important thing you need to consider is whom you want to trust as the guardian or conservator. However, if the one trusted with this role abuses their fiduciary duties, you will need to take further action in court to resolve the situation.

LifePath Law helps you make the decisions you need to keep you and your family secure in the long run. We want you to make the best decisions for your needs, so you can stay out of probate court.
