We assist clients in conservatorship proceedings so that they may assume the responsibility of taking care of a loved one who is physically unable or financially incapable of taking care of himself or herself.

A proceeding in which the Superior Court assumes control of an individual’s assets because that individual is not able to deal with his or her own assets. Usually the family must prove at a court hearing that the individual is incompetent. A court-appointed manager must post a bond. A Revocable Living trust can avoid a conservatorship by providing for the management of assets in the event of incapacity.
