Conservatorship Archives

How could a limited conservatorship help you care for your child?

Raising a child with special needs can be a challenging, all-consuming, full-time job. It can also be highly rewarding, but parents know the demands often seem endless. It's not uncommon for them to live almost in orbit of their children, patiently tending to their meals, homework, medications and activities.

Two things every conservator must know

Watching as loved ones struggle with their health can be a challenge. However, it can be dangerous when loved ones can no longer fulfill their basic needs. In these cases, it might be necessary for families to consider establishing a conservatorship to ensure their loved one gets the care they need.

Experienced guidance when you're seeking a conservatorship

Not only is their physical ability declining as they age, but their cognitive functioning is becoming less and less strong. You worry about keeping him or her safe, and wonder if a nursing home with 24-hour care would be the best for his or her health.

What is the difference between guardianship and conservatorship?

Sometimes family members need guidance in their lives from a guardian or conservator. These type of court ordered relationships are set in place to aid a young person or adult with their health and finances. In many states the term guardianship is blanketed over all age groups, but California has a different set of terms.

Preparing for a parent's incapacity

Some people are fortunate to stay physically and mentally sharp as a tack until their very last days, but many people just aren't that lucky. As they get older, they may become more forgetful, disorganized, and physically weak. All the details that go into managing their every day lives may start to get overwhelming, and it can be up to their adult children to step in and help -- whether the parent has asked for that help or not.

Why is Britney Spears still under a conservatorship?

People often associate the word "conservatorship" with those who have been deemed incapable of handling their own money.
