How are conservators and guardians assigned?

One of the main functions of probate courts in Connecticut is the assignment of conservators and guardians for people who cannot legally handle their own affairs. Both positions carry a lot of power over a person's life, and they carry a lot of responsibility. As a result, courts take the assignment of conservators and guardians very seriously.

Connecticut prepares to raise the estate tax exemption

Estate planning sounds like it only applies to people with large fortunes or complicated assets, but anyone who wants their descendants to have an easier time sorting out who gets what.

What is vexatious litigation in Connecticut?

If someone needs to use the court system, it can sometimes feel like the courthouse is a prison. There are so many details that need attention for cases that seem like they should be simple. But this confinement can be close to literal if someone is subject to actions brought by a controlling or harassing person.

What are an attorney's powers after a conservatorship?

Conservatorships and guardianships are a good way to render help to people who cannot do it for themselves. The idea of a caretaker for people with mental disabilities or a lack of legal age is an excellent one, although a conservatorship does not mean a person is completely incapable.
