How does a guardianship work?

You've probably heard the term "guardianship" and, in all likelihood, you have at least a basic understanding of the concept, but as a legal term, its definition is a little more detailed. Many might think of a guardianship as something for only the elderly to think about, but it's important to understand what it is and how it works, regardless of age.

What qualities should a legal guardian have?

As our parents get older, the unfortunate reality is that we often witness an upsetting decline in their physical and mental health. For parents with Alzheimer's disease, this can be particularly devastating as they may no longer recognize loved ones or understand what is in their best interests.

What legal rights does a 'protected person' have in Colorado?

There may come a time in life when a guardianship is considered to ensure a loved one is properly taken care of. There are many misconceptions about guardianships, particularly about the rights of the protected person. For Colorado residents who are considering a guardianship, or whose family members have filed for guardianship, it is important to know that this legal assignment does not mean the protect person no longer has any given rights.

Guardianship and conservatorship can help Colorado families

The words guardianship and conservatorship can have some very negative connotations to some people in Colorado. Both are generally thought of as giving up control over personal choice and independence. While no one wants to give up those things in their life, even fewer people really want to take those things away from their loved one. Instead of viewing a guardianship or conservatorship in a negative light, understanding their true purpose may help those in need of these services see the value each can provide.
