Conservatorships can be time-consuming and complicated. When a judge has appointed you to be the conservator of another person’s financial decisions, you have to fill out a lot of paperwork and attend court hearings. You may also be required to provide periodic reports to the court to prove that you are handling the person’s affairs properly.
Being a conservator is a big responsibility. Those in charge of conservatorships can find that they have to make some tough decisions at times. Within 60 days of being appointed a conservator, you are required to create an inventory of the protected person’s estate, including the value of all of his or her assets, such as real estate, furniture, stock and bonds. As a conservator, you are also responsible for paying for support for the protected person, and for paying off any debts he or she may have. Your duties as a conservator end when the protected person dies or becomes well enough to manage his or her financial affairs again.
One way to reduce the stress of a conservatorship is to hire an experienced lawyer to help you through the process. The lawyers at Yee Law Group have many years of experience with conservatorships and a deep understanding of the fiduciary duties involved. When complications arise, our lawyers are ready to step up and prepare your case for court.
