Why do I have to go to court to become a guardian or conservator? – Portland, Oregon

The Guardianship attorneys at Nay & Friedenberg will explain the Guardianship court process.

In this country, when we take away someone’s civil liberties we have to go through due process of law. There are certain steps we have to go through to ensure that someone’s rights aren’t being taken away unnecessarily.

When a court appoints a guardian or conservator, the court is taking away a person’s right to make decisions for himself or herself and giving it to someone else.

guardianship or conservatorship results in a loss of privacy. Both the petition detailing why you need a guardian or conservator and the required annual reports are public records.

We take this very seriously. A guardianship or conservatorship is a last resort.
