Guardians & Conservators for Incapacitated Adult & Minor's Estate
Guardian and Conservator cases are complex matters and the Supreme Court does not provide any forms to initiate these proceedings. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that you consult with an attorney.
A Guardian oversees the personal affairs of an incapacitated adult.
A Conservator is responsible for managing the financial affairs of an incapacitated person.
A Guardian of a Minor's Estate handles financial assets inherited or awarded to a minor.
Please note: Once a Court Order appointing a Guardian and/or Conservator has been signed by a Judge, the appointee must appear in the Probate Division of the Clerk's Office to formally qualify before acting in that capacity.
