Conservatorships facilitate the protection and control for a loved one in need. When age, injury, health concerns, and other issues combine and limit ones ability to provide for their personal needs, physical health, food, shelter, clothing, and more, a Conservatorship of the Person can be granted by the Court to a qualified individual.
Additionally, if one cannot manage financial resources, or resist fraud, a Conservatorship of the Estate can be attained. Frequently, a Conservator can gain both at the same time. Conservatorships also are granted for the developmentally disabled and missing persons, and here at THE LAW OFFICE we are here to help facilitate whatever course of action is best for you and the ones you care about.
After the passing of a family member, their estate and assets need to be gathered, managed, and distributed to the beneficiaries dictated in the decedent’s will, if they have one, and dictated by law if they do not.
