When making the choice to appoint a guardian or conservator, work with experienced legal professionals.
A court appointed guardian protects the interests of a debilitated individual, if they are unable to negotiate their will or estate. Courts require the support of a conservator when the holder of a will cannot manage their finances. It can be a tricky dilemma to appoint a conservator who acts in the best interest of a family's financial security. Not only does Holland Law Group specialize in this practice, but we go the extra mile for Northern Arizona residents to ensure the wishes of the estate holder.
Distinctions Between Guardians and Conservators
Many of Holland Law group's Northern Arizona clientele are confused by the distinction between guardian and conservator. The difference between these two roles are very important if a loved one has become recently debilitated and cannot look after their estate or will. Essentially, a conservator is appointed when a court intervenes and mandates a ward. This situation happens if an individual is critically injured and cannot express their wishes. The role of a guardian has more agency from family members to select a ward because the estate holder can critically reason. If either of these situations arise, look no further than our firm for your family member or friend to retain control of their estate.
