What is the role of a conservator?
A conservator is appointed to make financial decisions for a minor or vulnerable adult who is unable to make those decisions for him or herself.
Conservators have the ability to enter into contracts on behalf of a minor or vulnerable adult and take financial actions such as paying bills, investing assets, and selling property.
What is the difference between a guardian and a conservator?
Guardians are appointed by the court to make decisions regarding a person, while conservators are appointed to make decisions regarding a person’s property and finances.
Sometimes the same person is appointed as a guardian and a conservator, but not always.
