Guardianship and Conservatorship

Guardianship

Guardianship is used to manage a minor’s or incapacitated person’s personal medical care, living arrangements, personal care and day to day necessities of living.

Guardianship may become necessary when a child’s parents are unavailable or incapable of providing care for the child. A care provider may need to be appointed as a guardian to make medical decisions and to qualify for insurance benefits for the child. A Bend guardianship attorney can help you with the process. Our Central Oregon law firm is here to help.

Guardianship is also needed when an adult is unable to meet their day to day needs. As many people are living longer, they increasingly face challenges with partial or complete incapacity. The process can be gradual and often should be evaluated or addressed before something tragic (such as a fall or medical emergency) occurs. Perhaps you are concerned about your loved one’s safety and driving habits. Contact Albertazzi Law Firm - a Bend guardianship lawyer - for practical and legal help.

If you are an Oregon resident in need of the services of a California guardianship lawyer or a California conservatorship lawyer, we can help you.

Conservatorship

Conservatorship is used to manage a minor’s or incapacitated adult’s financial affairs. It is imperative that elderly or impaired clients have their finances safeguarded and supervised. Elder abuse and financial exploitation are all too common without legal protections. A Bend conservatorship attorney can help you. Our central Oregon law firm has been assisting clients in conservatorship matters for decades.

If you’re concerned about a vulnerable elderly parent or loved one, Albertazzi Law Firm, and its Oregon conservatorship lawyers can help. We can assist in the replacement of trustees or others who have mishandled a protected person’s trust. We also have a network of professionals who can help develop a complete care plan for someone whose capacity has been impaired by mental disease or disability.
