Our guardianship and conservatorship lawyers in Colorado Springs can help you obtain the protections your loved one needs.
What Are Guardians & Conservators?
A guardian is responsible for a protected person’s well-being; a conservator is responsible for the person’s financial affairs. A person for whom a guardian has been appointed is called a “ward.” A person for whom a conservator has been appointed is called the “protected person.” To appoint a guardian or conservator, you will have to navigate complex court proceedings.
Understanding Each Party’s Rights
A guardianship or conservatorship proceeding deals with the constitutional rights of those to be protected. Therefore, the alleged incapacitated person is generally required to be in the courtroom, though with good cause they may be excused. Further, the alleged incapacitated person has the right to examine all witnesses. Emergency appointments generally require a full hearing within 60 days. The alleged incapacitated person is also entitled to an attorney and will receive an attorney simply by asking.
