Guardianships and Conservatorships

Michigan Probate law guardianships and conservatorships are decided primarily in three situations:  when a person is not able to reasonably care for themselves because of a mental illness or handicap – or because of their physical inabilities.

Guardianship involves the northern Michigan courts empowering a person (known as the guardian) the responsibility of making decisions for someone else (known as the ward).  A conservatorship, on the other hand, empowers a person (known as the conservator) to make financial decisions for someone else (known as the protectee). 


While medical and psychological evaluations are commonplace when determining both guardianships and conservatorships, only our courts have the ultimate power to dictate the need for either.

Once assigned guardian or conservator, that person retains total control of the decision making process for their ward or protectee – including financial affairs, medical decisions and management of their financials.
