San Diego Conservatorship and Guardianship Attorneys
At Frisella Neilson, APC, our attorneys can assist when a conservatorship or guardianship becomes necessary.
A conservatorship can be valuable when a family member or loved one becomes unable to care for himself or herself and/or his or her estate or when an adult with developmental disabilities requires assistance. A guardianship could become necessary when a child loses a parent, possibly as a result of death, but oftentimes as a result of that child’s parents’ inability to continue to care for the child.
What Is a Guardianship? A Conservatorship? | Guardianship Lawyers Serving San Diego, La Jolla, Chula Vista, La Mesa and Southern California
A guardianship is for children. It enables (and obligates) an adult to take on the role of a parent, providing food, shelter, medical care, educational options for the child as well as fulfilling other obligations such as making financial decisions on the child’s behalf.
A conservator, by comparison, handles these important matters for an adult who is incapacitated, or mentally or physically disabled.
