Guardianship & Conservatorship
For minors and adults
What is a guardian?
A person a court appoints to help you make decisions about your health, safety, and self-care.
What is a conservator?
A person a court appoints to make decisions about your money and property.
Guardians and conservators are appointed by a court.
Any interested person can file a petition with the Superior Court asking the judge to decide these things:
- Can you meet your essential needs for physical health, safety, or self-care?
- Is a guardian or conservator needed to prevent harm to you?
- Can your needs be met by a protective arrangement or other alternative to guardianship or conservatorship?
