Conservatorship Attorney Long Beach
We help families care for loved ones who cannot take care of themselves. When an adult family member is unable to care for him or herself it may be appropriate to ask a judge to have a conservator named to oversee the person’s affairs. If you or your family find yourself in this situation, we can help.
A conservatorship can be established when a judge rules that a person (the conservatee) cannot care for him or herself and/or their finances. The judge would choose another person or organization (the conservator) to be responsible for the conservatee’s care, finances, or both. A conservator can be a family member, friend, or professional. Our conservatorship attorney Long Beach helps you through the process to understand the legal requirements and responsibilities of being a conservator.
There are conservatorships of the person and of the estate. When a conservator of a person is named, the conservator is responsible for:
- The conservatee’s care and protection,
- Where the conservatee will live, and
- The person’s daily needs, including health care, food, clothes, personal care, housekeeping and transportation.
