What is a guardianship or conservatorship?


A guardianship is like a conservatorship, but the court has found a person to be incompetent. In a conservatorship the court has found a person to be missing. They’re very similar; they’re both used to appoint someone to act, or to control a business or property belonging to the ward or missing person, but in practice a guardianship typically applies to a person that we know where they are; whereas, a conservatorship is for someone who may be missing or overseas serving in the military.
