Establishing A Conservatorship In California

Setting up a conservatorship in California can be a complicated process. You will have to get court approval and provide periodic updates to the court once a conservatorship has been established. Having an experienced lawyer on your side can help ensure that this process is carried out as smoothly as possible.

The Process

When requesting a conservatorship, it is necessary to show the court evidence of a person’s incapacity to care for themselves. Once incapacity has been established, a conservator will be appointed. In most cases, a spouse or an adult child will be named as a conservator. However, others, including family members and friends, may wish to be named conservator which can result in conflicts. It is up to the court to decide who is the best fit for the job.

Anyone may object to the establishment of the conservatorship or to the person who is assigned as the conservator. With so many potential legal hurdles, it is essential to have an attorney who understands this process and who can help you assert your interests.
