Conservatorships Protect Financial Assets

The decline of a loved one's physical or mental health is difficult to witness. It can also pose challenges from a legal perspective. When your loved one is no longer able to make decisions alone, it is important to seek legal advice immediately about handling his or her medical and financial affairs.

At The Law Office of Richard G. Garmil, we understand how overwhelming it can be to work through a situation like this. From our office in Haverhill, Massachusetts, we can help you establish:

  • Conservatorship: A conservator is legally authorized to make financial decisions, including payments for medical expenses and other bills, on behalf of an individual who has become incapacitated.
  • Guardianship: A legal guardian is authorized to make health care decisions for an incapacitated individual.

When Do You Need To Appoint A Guardian Or Conservator?

Conservatorship and guardianship usually become necessary when an individual becomes incapacitated and does not have a health care proxy or a durable power of attorney.

The conservator and legal guardian of an individual can be the same person, or they can be different. Our lawyer can help you determine what makes sense for your situation.
