Guardianships and Conservatorships

There are certain occasions when Virginia law requires the appointment of another person to look after the interests of a person who is incapable of making decisions due to a mental or psychological impairment.

If a loved one is unable to make decisions concerning personal care or finances, a court proceeding should be initiated to appoint a guardian to make that person’s personal and medical decisions, and/or a conservator to manage the person’s financial affairs.

Our office is experienced in all aspects of guardianship law and can assist you in obtaining a guardianship order while allowing your loved one to maintain as many rights as possible.
