Colorado Guardianship And Conservatorship
Many clients come to us concerned that guardianships and conservatorships mean loss of autonomy for their loved ones and increased burdens on themselves as guardians and conservators. Guardianship and conservatorship are useful tools that can achieve multiple goals, including protecting an incapacitated loved one’s safety and financial interests. It does not automatically eliminate autonomy nor does it require a client to make every decision for his or her loved one.
Guiding Clients Through The Guardianship And Conservatorship Process
The process of becoming a legal guardian can often be a complex one and may require an experienced lawyer who can explain the role of a guardian or conservator, the court process involved, and the duties and responsibilities of a guardian and conservator once appointed.
Most of the time, guardianships and conservatorships are uncontested, but dynamics differ for each family. Our team of professionals has the ability to be proactive about potential problems. If necessary, we can work together to help defuse tensions and offer alternative solutions before a guardianship becomes contested. Often, taking this proactive approach will save money and family stress in the long run.
Our firm has experience in handling estate planning through conservatorships. See the following article published by our attorneys in the Colorado Lawyer, a highly regarded legal periodical. Conservator-Created Wills: Issues in Litigation
