Guardianship and Conservatorship

Guardianship and Conservatorship over another person are available when a person is unable to take care of their personal and financial affairs. Proceedings for determination of legal disability and appointment of guardianship and/or conservatorship take place in the district court where the respondent lives. Guardianship takes care of personal affairs or day-to-day activities, while conservatorship handles the respondent’s financial affairs.
