Guardianship is of the person and conservatorship is of the property. The most restrictive guardianship is a guardianship and conservatorship without any limits on the powers of the guardian / conservator.
To learn more about guardianships and the appointment process, please visit the Guardianship page.
A conservatorship can take away a person's right to:
Decide to bring and defend actions in court
Buy and sell property
Enter into business and commercial transactions
Since the Probate Court should remove as few rights as possible, it is essential that any action be specific as to what is needed.
