Guardianships & Conservatorships
Courts might appoint a guardian or conservator during probate according to the decedent’s wishes. Guardians generally make decisions for and provide care to a minor or a person who is incapacitated, while conservators handle financial affairs. Like any other aspect of probate, these appointments can be complicated, and dealing with them may require an attorney’s guidance.

Trust Litigation in Probate
A trust is a legal arrangement where a person (the settlor) transfers assets to a trustee, who manages and distributes assets. In theory, trusts are straightforward, but this is not always true. Numerous issues can arise and lead to litigation.
- A trustee mismanaging assets
- Disagreements about the trust’s terms
- Concerns about the mental capacity of the settlor
Trust litigation is not easy, but it is worth it for parties worried about a trustee’s competence or integrity or the trust’s validity. If you are dealing with any kind of trust dispute, let our Overland Park probate attorneys represent you in this important matter.
