Conservatorships and Guardianships

 

When individuals no longer can make decisions or care for themselves, a court-supervised conservatorship sometimes is the only way to protect them. A conservatorship is a court-ordered protection arrangement for a disabled or incapacitated person. Conservatorships in Tennessee are established for adults. Though the meaning in other states varies, guardianship is used in Tennessee only for protection of minors.

 

A conservator of the person may be appointed for an incapacitated individual without assets who needs someone to make important decisions such as housing and health. If assets are involved, a conservator of the estate may be appointed to manage and protect those assets. Usually one person is appointed for both responsibilities. Co-conservators also may be appointed.

 

We are experienced with all aspects of conservatorships and their administration.
