Experienced Guardianship/Conservatorship Lawyers in New Jersey
Guardianships | Conservatorships | Preservation of Assets | Management of Finances or Health Care Decisions
Do you have a family member or other loved one who lacks the capacity to manage his or her own affairs? Maybe it’s an elderly parent or relative who is in the early stages of dementia or has other health issues? It may be the small child of a family member, in a situation where the parents are incarcerated, institutionalized or deceased. Or do you or a family member want to voluntarily appoint someone to manage your affairs?
When a person lacks the ability to manage his or her own affairs, the law allows for the appointment of a guardian to ensure that that person’s legal, medical and financial affairs are effectively managed. Additionally, if you want someone else to have the authority to manage your affairs, you can voluntarily appoint a conservator of your assets. In either instance, we can help.
