Guardianship involves filing a Petition with the Probate court asking for an Order of the Court to take control of the affairs of a person including their personal care and placement. This can be combined with a Petition for Conservatorship which is a request for an Order of the Court to take control of the financial affairs of a person. These are difficult family decisions and these proceedings may be consented to or contested. They may involve a person of any age that lacks the capacity to manage their own affairs, because of age, illness or injury. We have been involved in representing many clients over the years in these types of proceedings.
