Attorney, Court, and Guardianship or Conservatorship Fees
Authored By: Iowa Legal Aid
There are costs associated with bringing a guardianship or conservatorship case. There are filing fees and other court costs as well as the fee of the attorney who prepares the case. If the ward has assets, the court can order payment from the ward. If there are no or very little assets, then the attorney’s fees and court costs must still be paid but there is no governmental source to pay for the costs.
