The MSBA's Family Law Section Presents


"The Basics of Minnesota Guardianship and Conservatorship Law"

We often encounter incapacitated people, who cannot make decisions for themselves, or who otherwise need help with many facets of their lives. One of the ways to provide protection to such individuals is to have a Guardian and/or a Conservator appointed for them. This course will cover the following topics:

- The legal standard for establishment of Guardianship/Conservatorship in Minnesota;
- When the appointment of a Guardian/Conservator is appropriate and the less restrictive alternatives that may be utilized in lieu of such an appointment;
- The procedural requirements for appointment of a Guardian/Conservator;
- The differences between a Guardian and a Conservator;
- The statutory powers of a Guardian;
- The statutory powers of a Conservator;
- Who can be a Guardian/Conservator and the priorities for appointment;
- Reporting requirements for duly appointed Guardians/Conservators;
- Modification and/or termination of Guardianship/Conservatorship.
