Guardianship vs. Conservatorship

In Utah, guardianship and conservatorship are two different legal arrangements that allow one person to act on behalf of another. 

Below, we offer details about them:

  • Guardianship: This puts one person (the guardian) in a parent-like role over another (the ward). The arrangement allows the guardian to decide healthcare, education, and more for the ward. Courts must appoint a guardian. Unlike parents, guardians are not responsible for the actions of the ward. They do not have to use their money to care for the ward. 
  • Conservatorship: This allows one person (the conservator) to make financial decisions for another (the ward). Courts must also appoint conservators.

How to Establish Guardianship or Conservatorship in Utah 

The process for both begins with filing a case with the appropriate court and providing evidence underscoring the need for guardianship or conservatorship. The state’s courts can appoint attorneys to represent adults subject to either arrangement. Courts may appoint an attorney in cases involving children if they believe doing so is best for a child. Judges will assess the proposed guardianship or conservatorship and grant or deny it. 

Is it Possible to End Guardianship or Conservatorship?

Yes. A child’s guardianship or conservatorship will automatically end when they turn 18. Either arrangement will also end if a guardian or conservator resigns or a person becomes able to handle their affairs or passes away.
