Franklin Guardianship Lawyer

A guardianship is a legal framework designed to protect individuals incapable of managing their own affairs, whether due to age, incapacity, or disability. In Tennessee, this protective measure is taken very seriously, ensuring the well-being and rights of those who cannot advocate for themselves. “Guardians” for Tennessee adults are also known as “conservators.”

Those who may need the protection of a guardian or conservator include minors without a parent or with parents unable to care for them, as well as adults who have been deemed incapacitated by the courts due to physical or mental disability. This can include adults with cognitive decline, such as dementia, or those who are developmentally disabled. 

The primary aim of guardianships and conservatorships is to ensure the individual's safety, well-being, and financial stability. These court-appointed individuals have a duty to act in the ward's best interests and must report their actions to the courts, ensuring accountability and transparency.
