Guardianship & Conservatorship
We help our clients become a guardian of a minor or an adult as well as help adults be named conservator of an adult in Massachusetts. We focus on helping individuals who are voluntarily seeking to be a guardian or conservator or to achieve agreement among interested parties.
A guardianship may be appropriate in a variety of situations for both children and adults. A person may be incapacitated or unable to care for themselves, make certain decisions for themselves, or be unable to process information or communicate such that their health, safety, or welfare is at risk. A child’s parents may have died or be in a situation which prevents them from properly caring for the child.
We help people who are voluntarily seeking to become guardian for a minor or an adult in Massachusetts achieve that goal. If there is a dispute regarding guardianship, we help our client reach an agreement outside of court for a guardian to be named among family or interested parties; or if in mediation, we work as the mediator with all parties involved to reach agreement.
