Conservatorships and Guardianships
Legal guardianship is a means by which an adult can assume the legal and physical responsibility for minors under the age of 17 years who are not his or her natural or adopted children. People may apply for legal guardianship on a temporary or permanent basis after a child’s custodial parents become incapacitated or have been proven unfit to properly care for the child.
Legal conservatorship is a similar legal process, but it involves vulnerable adults over the age of 18. A person might apply for conservatorship over an adult with a severe developmental or physical disability who is unable to make legal decisions in his or her own best interests. Adult children of elderly people often assume conservatorship to ensure that their parents are not taken advantage of financially.
