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.
