Conservatorship

 

What is a conservatorship?
A conservatorship is a court-supervised proceeding for managing the financial affairs and/or personal care of a person called a conservatee. The individual appointed to manage the incapacitated person’s affairs is called a conservator.
While you have capacity, you may execute revocable trusts, durable powers of attorney, and advance health care directives to avoid the need for a conservatorship in the event that you become incapacitated.
