Going to court to obtain the legal rights to handle a loved one’s finances or make medical decisions can be a trying experience. Absent a signed advance medical directive or durable power of attorney by your family member prior to their becoming incapacitated, your only recourse is to hire me to go to court. A conservatorship is a legal process to obtain the rights to gain control over an incapacitated family member’s finances, real estate, and income. A guardianship is a court proceeding to be able to legally make medical and personal decisions for a loved one who is unable to make those decisions on their own. Which one does a potential client need? A conservatorship, guardianship, or both? The attorneys at J.S. Burton, PLC have the experience to properly steward you to determine what process is best.
