When an elder is unable to care for their needs mentally or physically, a conservatorship may be established. With a conservatorship, a judge appoints a guardian to manage the financial affairs or the daily life of the elder. When you choose to speak with an attorney at Rosā Law Offices, PC, we can determine if you can receive this representation without formal judicial involvement. If a formal conservatorship is needed, we will help you every step of the way.
A conservator is appointed if an elder is no longer able to make sound financial decisions. This includes the inability to resist fraud or undue influence. This conservator is given responsibilities including paying bills, making investments, collecting income, and protecting the elder's assets. If your loved one is unable to manage financial matters, it is possible to protect them with a conservatorship.
A conservator of the person helps an adult who cannot care for their personal needs, such as food, clothing, or shelter. This provides your loved one with help through their daily life. Through a conservatorship, the elder is protected from abuse because the court supervises the conservator. Protect your loved one with a conservatorship by calling Rosā Law Offices, PC today.
