Guardianship & Conservatorship

When living persons are no longer able to care for themselves and make life care decisions, a proceeding must be commenced in probate court to obtain a Conservatorship and/or Guardianship. This is often referred to as “Living Probate”.  We first look at more private and cost effective alternatives to Guardianship and Conservatorship. If these alternatives are unavailable, we can help you petition the court for and maintain these court -supervised adult protection mechanisms.

There are situations where the need for guardianship or for conservatorship is immediate such as when someone is becoming violent and needs to be admitted to a psych unit in a hospital. We can help by going to court and requesting an emergency guardianship and/or conservatorship.  A regular process normally takes about 30 days if uncontested and an emergency application takes 1-3 days. The process of requesting an emergency hearing is quite intricate, and probably requires an attorney.

Our probate services are centered on your need to save money, protect privacy, and minimize family conflict. Mr. Kelly is a civil mediator, with advanced probate mediation training. We choose the most efficient process for your circumstances that will move you through the process as quickly as possible and allow you to focus on the future.
