Protective Proceedings


Brooks Estate Law, Probate, Estate Planning, Trust Administration

When a person cannot legally care for him or herself due to incapacity or youth, it is sometimes necessary to go to Court to have a formal caretaker appointed.

A Guardian is responsible for taking care of an individual, and can essentially make decisions for an individual that a parent would make for a child.  A Conservator is responsible for overseeing the financial affairs of an individual.  These two roles often go hand-in-hand.

Protective proceedings are initiated with the Court, and require (often modest) ongoing interaction with the Court until the individual is no longer in need of protection and the proceedings are ended.
