What is a Conservatorship

A Conservatorship is a legal process that assigns someone else to manage the personal care or finances of an adult who is unable to care for themselves or make rational financial decisions. This person is called a "conservatoratee." The purpose of a conservatorship is to ensure that someone capable is looking after the conservatoratee's needs.

Types of Conservatorship

There are three types of conservatorship, which are responsible for different areas. The conservator of the person is in charge of personal affairs, while the conservator of the estate handles financial matters. Dual conservatorship combines both of these roles.
