Guardianships / Conservatorships

Maryville Guardianship and Conservatorship Lawyers

Not all people are able to provide for themselves and protect their own financial interests. Sometimes it is necessary to consider a guardianship or a conservatorship in order to be able to properly care for the needs of a minor, disabled, or elderly relative. At the Maryville law offices of Costner and Greene, we help families facing these issues. Whether you have a loved one with a disability, an elderly relative who needs assistance in handling their affairs, or a minor relative in need of a legal guardian, we can help you protect their legal rights.

Conservatorships are most often obtained for elderly people or young people with disabilities who are about to become adults. As a conservator, you will be able to make financial and medical decisions, and take care of the affairs of the person in question. Once a conservatorship is in place, the conservator will not need a power of attorney or court petition to make legal decisions on their behalf. A conservatorship will allow you to deal with property and finance issues, as well as matters related to day-to-day care and living.

Guardianship for Estate Administration

If you are developing an estate plan and you have minor children, it is important to put a guardianship plan in place. If two parents die, their minor children will be in need of a guardian. If the deceased parents did not leave behind a will or specify a guardian, someone will need to set up a guardianship for the children.
