Guardianship and Conservatorship

A guardianship and conservatorship are very similar in many ways. A guardianship ensures that the physical and medical needs of the minor or incapacitated person are being met, while a conservatorship ensures that the minor's or incapacitated person's financial affairs are in order and their property protected. Due to their similarities, Georgia law has separate but comparable procedures for establishing a guardianship or conservatorship. 

Managing the care and financial affairs of minors and persons unable to care for themselves requires following a stringent set of state mandated legal procedures. The estate lawyers of Whelchel, Dunlap, Jarrard & Walker, LLP are well versed in guiding clients through these complex processes and can manage your personal affairs in a timely and efficient manner.
