Guardianship and Conservatorship

Guardianships and Conservatorships are court orders that authorize another person or entity a legal relationship of decision making to be made on behalf of another individual. That individual then becomes what is currently described as a “Protected Person” or “Person under Guardianship”. These court orders can be limited in scope or cover wider power over full decision making.

UCOA Policy Position:

UCOA wants individuals making these decisions to understand the role of guardianships and conservatorships, when they are used, the differences between the two in function and purpose, and alternate ways to deal with managing personal affairs that may be less restrictive.
