Establishing a Guardianship or Conservatorship

Guardians and conservators play similar but distinct roles:

  • Guardianship — A guardian is responsible for providing day-to-day care for a minor child or incapacitated adult, also ensuring that the medical needs of these individuals are met. Often when a child is involved, a guardian assumes the role of a parent. A guardian is appointed by the court.
  • Conservatorship — A conservator is responsible for managing the financial affairs of either a minor child or incapacitated adult. This may involve paying bills, managing bank accounts, managing investments and more. A conservator is appointed by the court.
