Guardianship & Conservatorship Lawyers in Colorado
Call (720) 491-3117 to Request a Confidential Consultation
We at Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C. understand the difficulty faced as a result of physical disability and mental incapacitation, whether it be the result of injury, aging or otherwise. Quite often, our loved ones are unable to take care of their physical or financial needs. The state of Colorado allows for the appointment of a guardian and/or conservator in such situations.
A guardian is responsible for ensuring the incapacitated individual's physical well-being, and is often tasked with seeing that their loved one is well cared for, receives the proper medical care, even where that individual may reside. While one would not be able to make such decisions for an incapacitated individual otherwise, the establishment of a guardian allows for one to step in and manage the physical well-being for their loved one. At Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C., our estate planning lawyers can help you establish a guardianship or conservatorship that is aligned with your needs.
What Is a Conservatorship?
A conservatorship is similar to a guardianship in that a conservator is tasked with managing another individual, but in this case, it is to oversee the financial aspect of their lives. Again, whether it's as a result of injury, aging or otherwise, we often lose our ability to see to our own financial well-being.
Such circumstances can be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to deal with as today's institutions are more stringently regulated than ever before. The appointment of a conservator allows that individual to step in and access financial resources and manage the day-to-day, month-to-month, and year-to-year financial needs of their loved one.
