The need for a Mississippi guardianship or conservatorship often arises in difficult times and can be very stressful and taxing. It is indeed a sad time when a loved one is no longer able to make responsible decisions about their well being and/or finances. When exactly is a guardianship or conservatorship needed. Consider the following situations:
- Is your disabled child turning 21? If so, your “child” will be a legal adult and will be responsible for his own medical, educational and personal decisions, unless you become his legal guardian.
- Is your elderly parent or spouse suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s and no longer able to make his own safe, responsible decisions?
- Has your family member been in an accident which has left him debilitated or in a coma and no longer able to communicate decisions about his medical or financial well being?
- Has your minor child inherited insurance money and the insurance company says a guardian or conservator needs to be in place before they release the money?
