WHAT TO DO WHEN YOUR LOVED ONE IS UNABLE

TO MANAGE THEIR AFFAIRS

The first question in any potential conservatorship is whether the person in need has the ability to

manage their finances or make their medical decisions.  If not, the issue becomes whether the person has a trust, a durable power of attorney, and/or an advanced health care directive providing a transfer of authority without the Court’s involvement.  If there is no such estate planning, most likely a conservatorship will be required.

People have the right determine where they will live, with whom, whether they will get married, whether to get medical treatment, etc.  They also have the right to enter into contracts, buy and sell property, file and settle law suits, and maintain bank accounts, etc.  In a conservatorship, the Court is asked to strip any or all of these rights from the conserved person and confer them on the conservator.   Because the Court is loath to take an individual’s right from them, they are very cautious and will fully investigate the situation.
