Indianapolis, Indiana and Marion County Guardianship and Conservatorship Answers

Guardianships and conservatorships are legal protections for those who can no longer take care of their own affairs. They can be inquired about on behalf of people who are allegedly incompetent, addicted, or disabled, as well as minors in certain scenarios. Once a guardianship or conservatorship is awarded, that guardian now controls and protects that person, or his or her assets.

There are various scenarios where guardianship or conservatorship may be appropriate, including the examples below:

  • A guardianship can be appropriate when elderly person has reached the point in their lives where they are unable to care for themselves. If this person has yet to create a durable power of attorney or make other arrangements as part of an estate plan, guardianship may be needed to ensure that the person receives proper care.
  • A conservatorship may be needed for a child who has been given an inheritance or compensation for an accident, if the child’s parents are not able to properly manage the money.
  • A guardianship and conservatorship may be appropriate for a child with special needs when that child turns 18. These arrangements can ensure that a guardian or conservator can still make any critical decisions regarding the child’s medical care and finances.

In order for guardianship to be awarded, it is usually required to go to court and offer certain proof of incompetence. Individuals seeking court-ordered guardianship must usually present documents like a physician’s statement and certain medical records to help make their case.
