Overview of Guardianship & Conservatorship
Guardianship is the process of having the Probate Court appoint an individual to manage the well being of an incapacitated individual, usually a family member. Technically, in Georgia like many states, we have two components:
  1. Guardianship (to manage health care and other medical/placement decisions);
  2. Conservatorship (to manage finances and property matters).
If the incapacitated person planned ahead and signed durable powers of attorney for finances and health care, that person may not need a guardian or conservator because the person named in those documents can take charge. However, if no planning has been done, which unfortunately is a common occurrence, family members must ask a court to appoint a conservator and/or guardian. Contact us if you need to see Guardianship or Conservatorship of a loved one.

Once you've learned the basics you might consider attending a free workshop, or take advantage of a free Estate Administration consultation.
