Understanding The Purpose Of Conservatorships
Conservatorships appoint one person or entity to be responsible for managing another adult’s finances and/or personal care. The court may appoint a conservator of the person or their estate or sometimes both, depending on the circumstances. This is because the person, generally known as the “conservatee,” is unable to care for himself or herself or is incapable of making sound financial decisions on their own.
While there are a range of conservatorships and even some alternatives, conservatorships are highly complex and are frequently subject to some level of emotional turmoil for the parties involved. The determination of whether a general or limited conservatorship is appropriate due to age, sudden disability or developmental disabilities relies on a multifaceted process.
Russell stays current with legislative updates and case law to protect his clients’ interests. He can help you establish this legal relationship as conservator and understand your responsibilities as a conservator.
