Conservators Versus Guardians in New Jersey


Conservatorship and Guardianship are different in the State of New Jersey but have one chief characteristic in common: they are used to get people the care that they need.

The chief difference between a guardianship and conservatorship is that guardians make decisions on behalf of the individual such as where the person lives and those regarding medical issues while a conservator manages the financial affairs of the individual including asset management and investment.

Someone can even be both a guardian and conservator for the same person. This is called a plenary guardianship.
