Guardians & Conservators
Navigate Oakland County Caretaker Laws with BRMM
When a loved one can no longer take complete care of themselves, it can be necessary for a guardian or conservator to look after their personal care and financial affairs. Guardians protect people, while conservators manage money and property. In most cases, these two will be appointed in the same proceeding, often with one person serving in both capacities. The team at Barron, Rosenberg, Mayoras & Mayoras helps clients to navigate these particular estate matters.
Finding Caretakers You Can Trust
Guardianship and conservatorship court proceedings are by their nature, intrusive, and result in the legal recognition that a person can no longer make responsible decisions about their own health care, treatment, or financial matters. It is important to get the help of experienced Troy estate and probate attorneys.
Guardianship and conservatorship are used in connection with:
- Elderly person whose dementia or medical condition makes independent decision making impossible
- Accident victims
- Developmentally disabled adults or minors who comes into a substantial amount of money in their own name.
