Attorney’s Office

  • Does the person recommended to be the guardian and/or conservator have to be a family member?

    No, in many cases the appointees are neighbors, friends, or sometimes volunteers. In some cases family members may choose not to be an appointee, the family member may be unable to serve, or no family members may exist.
