What Is a Conservatorship?
When an individual is unable to make decisions about financial matters independently, a conservator can be appointed to manage these affairs. A judge oversees the process of establishing a conservatorship. Specific requirements must be met in order to ensure compliance with the law and due process.
If you are interested in establishing a conservatorship to care for the needs of a minor child or an adult, you should talk to an attorney about these requirements and the legal process involved.
