Newport Beach Conservatorship Attorneys

Highly-Rated Legal Support for Family Law Matters

Are you in need of a conservatorship for a family member or friend? When an individual can no longer care for himself or herself due to physical or mental incapacities, a conservatorship can be established by the courts. A judge will assign the individual’s care to another trusted person or organization. Most conservatorships involve the elderly, but they can also apply in cases of younger people impaired by injury or illness.

Our proven track record of legal support has earned us the highest marks with our peers.

What Does a Conservator Do?

Different types of conservatorships exist, which are established according to the needs of the conservatee (the individual who needs care). The two most common are the general conservatorship and the limited conservatorship. A person who needs maximum care will likely be under the protection of a general conservator, while the person who can take care of some of his or her own needs will only need a limited conservator.

Conservatorships are also divided into the categories of "conservator of the person" and "conservator of the estate." A person may be assigned one or both depending on the capacity of the individual needing care.

A conservator of a person will be responsible for all matters pertaining to the conservatee’s physical and mental well-being, including but not limited to:

  • Housing
  • Food
  • Medical care
  • Social relations, events, etc.
  • Hygiene
  • Transportation

A conservatorship of the estate will be responsible for handling all of the conservatee’s financial matters, such as:

  • Collecting income
  • Paying bills
  • Locating assets
  • Protecting assets
  • Making responsible investments

In both cases, the conservator will be responsible for reporting to the court concerning the status of the conservatee and/or his or her financial condition.
