Guardianship & Conservatorship Litigation

Columbia Guardianship Attorney

At Carrie Warner, Attorney at Law, we handle contested guardianship and conservatorship actions in the Probate Court. In some cases, an individual will have a power of attorney in place to designate an individual in charge of their financial and health care decisions. But when an individual falls ill or is incapacitated without a power of attorney for their finances or health care needs, then family members may need to petition the court to appoint a guardian or conservator.

If your family needs assistance establishing guardianship and conservatorship of a loved one or need to dispute an appointment, talk to one of our Columbia guardianship lawyers at our firm. We can represent you in Probate Court and help to resolve disputes regarding appointed guardians or conservators.

Safeguarding the Interests of Your Loved One

Guardianship and conservatorship litigation is necessary when a loved one or someone you know is incapable of taking care of their own medical and financial affairs due to age, chronic drug or alcohol abuse, or other medical conditions. Often times, these types of actions are highly contested as multiple people who have statutory authority may petition for appointment as guardian or conservator at the same time.

Disputes regarding conservatorship and guardianship can also arise as a result of:

  • Mismanagement of a conservatee's assets
  • Poor decisions about a conservatee's health care
  • Elder abuse
  • Validity of powers of attorney
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Financial exploitation

We handle and assist individuals with this type of litigation to ensure that their loved one is protected and not financially exploited by third persons.
