Help appointing a conservator

When a person is unable to make decisions on his or her own, and no power of attorney is in place, the court can appoint a conservator to make financial decisions. This includes paying bills, handling investments, or buying and selling real estate.

Frequently, conservatorships become necessary when an elderly individual becomes ill or disabled. Without an estate plan in place, you will need to work through the courts in order to pay bills and sell assets to pay for medical costs.

We can assist you with the process of becoming a conservator. Our attorneys can also advise you about your rights and responsibilities as a conservator. We will provide you with the information you need so you can make informed decisions regarding your loved one's finances.
