There are a number of circumstances where a guardianship or conservatorship may be appropriate:
- A guardianship may be appropriate when an elderly person has reached the point where they are unable to care for themselves. If this person has not already created durable powers of attorney or made other arrangements as part of an estate plan, a guardianship may be necessary to ensure that the person received proper care.
- A conservatorship may be necessary for a child who has received an inheritance or compensation for an accident, if the child's parents are unable to properly manage the money.
- A guardianship and conservatorship may be appropriate for a child with special needs when that child turns 18. These arrangements can ensure that a guardian or conservator can still make essential decisions regarding the child's medical care and finances.
