Court Appointed Fiduciary Services
Protection. Advocacy. Accountability.
Protecting those in need. It’s a simple goal with tremendous responsibility. Sterling Case Management & Fiduciaries of Arizona offers fiduciary services for those in search of a court appointed guardian or conservator.
While the goals for protection are the same, the needs and requirements vary. Protection for an individual can be due to aging, disease or injury. The need for protection can be temporary or permanent.
You can receive help managing both medical and financial needs. Our licensed fiduciary, once appointed can make decisions or assist in making decisions around:
- Where an individual will live and where they may go
- Personal rights, such as driving a car, dating, cell phone use, etc. (Within the limitations of the court order)
- What medical treatments they will receive
- Who will have direct contact
- Maintaining assets
- Ensuring medical and living arrangements are within the limits of available funds and resources
With our help, you can protect against financial abuse, fraud or undue influence. No matter if the clients are adults or a minors, our role as a fiduciary is to advocate.
Safeguards Begin With Careful Review.
At Sterling Case Management & Fiduciaries of Arizona we begin with a careful, in depth review of the individual’s needs. With the help of attorneys, physicians and social workers, recommendations can be made to the court.
The court will decide on a variety of key issues, including:
The appointment of a guardian or conservator
What limitations should be placed on the guardian’s or conservator’s authority
Required reports and filings
Successors to a guardian
When restoration of rights may be appropriate
All of these decisions are made to ensure the level of protection is in alignment with the individual’s needs and rights. As needs change modifications can be made.
This way, you always have peace of mind knowing that safeguards put in place reflect the true needs of the individual.
