General Conservatorship

General Conservatorship

A conservatorship is a court order that appoints a person as the conservator for the care of the conservatee. The conservator is generally a family member, close friend, or a private professional fiduciary.

There are two types of conservatorships:

  • Conservator of the person: The designated person assists you with your daily needs, including personal care, healthcare, meals, transportation, housekeeping, clothing, and recreation.
  • Conservator of the estate: This person manages and maintains your finances, including contracting, protecting your assets, buying/selling property, collecting income, paying bills, and investing.

Conservatorships are time consuming, costly and inefficient. We draft powers of attorney, advance health care directives and other important documents that will help you avoid the necessity of a conservatorship later in life. With proper documents, you can designate an individual to make important financial, health care and other critical life decisions on your behalf in the event that you become incapacitated.

When a loved one is in need of a conservatorship, schedule a consultation with our attorneys. We will provide the proper guidance, and walk you throughout this delicate process.
