San Jose Conservatorship Lawyer

The Role of Conservatorship

Similar to guardianship, conservatorship is a term that applies to the courts application of an individual to take care of, and be legally responsible for, another adult who is unable to take care of their own legal responsibilities. A conservatorship can be limited to legal responsibilities over the person, the estate or both the person and the estate together. There are other types of conservatorships available as well, and a San Jose estate planning attorney can provide valuable advice on any matters of conservatorship that may arise.

The process of conservatorship begins when a petition is filed with the court that indicates the subject is no longer able to fulfill their own legal responsibilities to self. An investigation may be initiated shortly thereafter which seeks to determine the legitimacy of the petition, the state of the subject and other matters that may play a role in the final conclusion. A conservator has many legal responsibilities to the individual as well as the estate, and must consistently meet those responsibilities in terms of providing accurate details regarding expenses and other matters.
