Conservatorships

In California, conservatorship occurs when a court declares an individual unable to care for his or her legal matters and appoints another individual, known as the conservator, to do so. The conservator must then protect and provide for the adult in need of assistance by managing the individual and/or his or her estate. caregiver

General conservatorships can take three basic forms:

  1. Conservatorship of the person
  2. Conservatorship of the estate
  3. Conservatorship of person and estate
