A conservatorship is when one person is given the legal authority and responsibility to care for another person, who is deemed physically or mentally unable to care for themselves. A conservator can be put in charge of a person’s finances, their well-being, or both. The Southern California conservatorship attorneys at Holstrom, Block & Parke, APLC understand that this is a serious and delicate situation.
Determining whether or not a loved one needs an appointed conservator is not an easy decision. Even more difficult is when a court appoints a conservatorship which you feel is unnecessary or carries the risk of abuse or other dangers to the well-being of your loved one. Whatever the case may be, our experienced estate planning lawyers can walk you through the legal process for finding a solution.
Conservatorships of the person and conservatorships of the estate are the most common types of conservatorships sought in California courts. Depending on the needs of your loved one, you can seek either or both forms of a conservatorship.
A third type of conservatorship is the limited conservatorship for developmentally disabled adults. This type of conservator is given some amount of both personal and financial decision-making power, but is required to use that power to help the individual to become as independent as possible.
If you feel that a loved one needs a conservator or if you believe a conservator has been appointed who is unfit for the responsibility, call our experienced conservatorship lawyers in our Southern California office at (855) 939-9111 or send us an email online.
