In protective proceedings, a guardian or conservator is appointed by the Court to make decisions for an adult or minor the Court deems to be incapacitated.
Generally, conservatorships and guardianships are legal proceedings that are initiated to establish an individual’s inability to manage their affairs, and result in the legal appointment of someone else to manage them.
In a conservatorship, the Court appoints a conservator to manage, preserve, and administer assets owed by and for the benefit of the protected person. A guardianship, on the other hand, is a legal proceeding in which an individual’s civil liberties are transferred to a guardian to exercise decisions regarding the health and welfare of the individual.
