The death of a loved one can be a very difficult and stressful time for all involved. The goal of any estate plan is to provide peace of mind. At Leighton & Abdo, PLLC, we strive to make sure all of your estate planning needs are met. Whether it is a simple Last Will and Testament or a complex Trust, we will provide you with the proper knowledge necessary for you to make informed decisions concerning your estate plan. Since no two estate plans are exactly the same, we recommend that you meet with our attorneys to consider the pros and cons of your distinctive needs.

GUARDIANSHIP & CONSERVATORSHIP

A guardianship is a legal relationship that is established when a person or an institution is named in a will or appointed by the Court to care for the person of a minor child or an incapacitated adult. 

 

A conservatorship is a legal relationship that is established when a person or institution is appointed by the Court to care for the financial affairs of a minor child or an incapacitated adult. 

 

Depending on the facts of a given case, sometimes it is necessary to file for both a guardianship and a conservatorship.
