Conservatorship & Guardianship
San Bernardino Lawyers Helping Families Like Yours
Though aging is just another part of life, there are particularly unfortunate
scenarios in which a person may be completely incapable of taking on the
responsibility of caring for their own health, financial duties, or other
legal matters. For this reason, establishing the role of legal conservatorship
was created. In California, conservatorship can be granted to protect
elders or adults who are unable to care for themselves.
You may need to establish a conservator in cases of:
- Alzheimer's disease
- Comatose or unconsciousness state
- Other health, medical, or mental incapacities
