Guardianships and Conservatorships
A guardianship gives a person the legal authority to care for and make a range of decisions for another person. Courts refer to this as a “protective proceeding” which can be an invaluable tool for making sure that a loved one – whether a young child or an older adult – is properly cared for. The Ashland, Oregon law office of Good, Bucy, Elson & Drescher can assist with guardianship proceedings.
Elderly adults or incapacitated adults may require another to manage their finances. Our office can assist you to appoint an appropriate person in what is called a conservatorship proceeding. Many times both a guardianship and a conservatorship will be appropriate for the same person.
If you are concerned about a loved one and believe that a guardianship or a conservatorship may be appropriate, please contact the law office of Good, Bucy, Elson & Drescher to set up an appointment and we will gladly assist you.
