Ch. 3 - Q1: Generally, what is guardianship and conservatorship law?

A1:         Most people at some point in their life will know a loved one who is unable to make responsible decisions about their finances, property, living situations or care.  Guardianships and conservatorships are legal relationships designed to protect vulnerable persons by providing court-appointed representatives to act on their behalf.  (Nebraska Conservatorship Flowchart, Nebraska Guardianship Flowchart, Nebraska Guardianship and Conservatorship Flowchart)
