Not to be confused with a conservatorship, Legal Guardianship is essentially the legal right given to someone, allowing that person to be accountable and responsible for the health care, housing, food, clothing, finances and other necessities of a person deemed incapable of providing these things themselves. This is especially common for minors as well as people with disabilities.
A conservatorship is the legal right given to an individual to be responsible for the assets and finances of any person deemed completely incapable of doing it on their own. Typically this is mean for adults with disabilities, or other types of issues in adults that render them incapable of maintaining their own finances as assets. The conservator would essentially control the assets and finances to provide for the needs and healthcare of the individual in which the conservatorship is for. Gunderson, Denton, & Peterson can help you clarify your duties and what is expected of you, as well as assist you with any corresponding legal issues regarding your Legal Guardianship or Conservatorship.
Things such as opening a bank account, which cannot be done by a minor, must be done for them by their appointed Legal Guardian, as well as other things like enrolling in school and meeting the daily living needs for this child or adult.
