In September, Breanna Young, Wills, Trusts, and Probate attorney, presented Iowa’s New Guardianship & Conservatorship Statutes at the Iowa Paralegal Association’s 2020 Fall Virtual Seminar.
In the presentation, Breanna broke down the differences between a guardianship and conservatorship and discussed less-restrictive alternatives to those court proceedings. She also provided an update on recent changes to Iowa law and how they impact the establishment of a guardianship or conservatorship.
During the Q&A, Breanna answered questions about the intersection of personal injury settlements and conservatorships. She also gave insight on how to more smoothly transition existing guardianships and conservatorships to comply with the new laws.
