Conservatorships / Guardianships

The Probate Court has been authorized by the Minnesota State Legislature to appoint persons called conservators and guardians to manage the affairs of incapacitated or incompetent people.  At some time, a person may need or want to take responsibility for physically or mentally incapacitated persons who cannot manage their personal or financial affairs.  It is also possible that you may feel you would like to have some assistance in managing your own affairs under court sanction and supervision.  The appointed person is called a "conservator" or a "guardian."
