From time to time, persons may find themselves unable to make responsible decisions about their finances, property, living situations or personal care. In these cases, a guardian or conservator may be appointed by the court to protect the interests or finances of a minor child or an incapacitated loved one. Bruner Frank Schumacher, L.L.C. has extensive experience in both the establishment and maintenance of such protective proceedings.
A guardian is a person appointed by the court to make personal decisions on behalf of the protected person regarding things such as where to live, medical decisions, training and education, etc.
A conservator is a person appointed by the court to make financial decisions on behalf of the protected person and has the power to do such things as enter into contracts, pay bills, invest assets, and perform other financial functions for the protected person.
