Guardianship: A Legal Solution Sometimes Needed For Minors And Incapacitated Adults
Does a member of your family or someone else whom you watch out for need protective care? They may need legal protection as a minor or as an adult with a clinically diagnosed condition that prevents them from making decisions or communicating clearly regarding their health and safety. Or they may need someone to manage only their financial affairs. A guardianship or conservatorship may be the legal solution you are looking for.
Guardianships and conservatorships in Massachusetts are handled through the Probate and Family Court. A guardianship may be procured for the care of an incapacitated adult or for a child. A conservatorship allows for the management of a protected person’s property as authorized by the court. In either case, an attorney’s guidance through all steps of the legal process can increase the chances of a successful resolution.
