Guardianships & Conservatorships

Protecting The Future Of a Loved One And Their Estate

Guardianships and conservatorships ensure that decisions are made in the best interest of the individual or estate when someone is no longer able to make decisions regarding their future or the future of their estate. When this occurs, they need a representative to make decisions on their behalf. 

Setting up the right guardianship or conservatorship can make a difference in your loved one’s future. Our Twin Cities lawyers at Groshek Law PA work closely with clients and individualize our services to suit their best interests.

What Is A Guardianship?

Guardians make decisions on behalf of an incompetent or incapacitated individual regarding their medical treatments, living arrangements and safety. Oftentimes unfortunate lifechanging events create the need for guardianships—a dementia diagnosis, for example, or a catastrophic accident.

What Is A Conservatorship?

Conservators have the authority to make financial decisions on behalf of an incompetent or incapacitated individual. Conservatorships may involve the management of bills, debts and other financial-related tasks for the estate owner who has been deemed incapable of such tasks.
