Probate Conservatorships of the Person & Estate

There are many types of conservatorships that can be sought under California law; however, the two main types are those that are sought under the Lanterman-Petris-Short Act (referred to as LPS conservatorships) and those that are sought under the Probate Code. The kind that is sought under the Probate Code is commonly shortened to a probate conservatorship and is granted when a person is deemed to be unable to care for themselves and / or their property - typically because they are disabled or incapacitated in some way.

This conservatorship is divided even more so that the courts can grant the position of the Conservator of the Person and the Conservator of the Estate. When someone is appointed as the Conservator of the Person, they are given the legal ability to care for the conservatee's personal matters - such as their health and clothing. On the other hand, when someone is appointed as the Conservator of the Estate, they are given the responsibility of managing the finances and property of the conservatee - such as having the ability to make transactions.

Why Hire a San Bernardino Conservatorship Attorney?

If you have begun to notice the declining ability of a loved one to care for themselves and have begun to grow concerned, it might be time to get the involvement of an experienced conservatorship lawyer. Especially should a power of attorney not have been appointed, you need to be confident knowing that your loved one will be cared for and that their health and estate will not be mismanaged.
