Guardianship and Conservatorship in Iowa

The Guardianship and Conservatorship in Iowa 2020  handbook from Iowa Legal Aid & the Iowa Developmental Disabilities Council provides answers to questions on when and how to seek guardianship &/or conservatorship.  It has a wealth of information to help answer many questions on these topics.

The Iowa Legal Aid: Guardianship and Conservatorship in Iowa – Issues in Substitute Decision Making – – What Parents Need to Know… is a great place to answer some basic questions about guardianship.

The Iowa Legal Aid: How to set up Guardianship or Conservatorship link is a good starting point.

The Iowa Legal Aid: Picking a Guardian or Conservator link helps with this process.

The Iowa Legal Aid: Guardianship Legal  Information link  may also be used to find answers on these topics.

Also, the American Bar Association’s PRACTICAL Tool for Lawyers: Steps in Supporting Decision-Making is a document that lawyers use to determine possible supports that may be needed when a family is requesting guardianship/conservatorship. The PRACTICAL Tool aims to help lawyers identify and implement decision-making options for persons with disabilities that are less restrictive than guardianship.  It may be a useful guide for parents to see what questions they need to consider as they begin this process.
