Conservatorships

A conservatorship allows a responsible person or professional to manage the financial and/or medical affairs for an impaired adult when that adult did not have any legal documents appointing anyone to serve as his/her representative. A conservator is appointed by the court. The court documents required to establish a conservatorship are complicated and burdensome. After a conservatorship is established, the court retains ongoing supervision until such time that the conservatorship is terminated.
