A conservatorship is when a person is given the legal authority and responsibility to care for another person, who is deemed physically or mentally unable to care for themselves. A conservator can be put in charge of a person’s finances, their well-being, or both.
Under a conservatorship, the conservator has multiple important responsibilities, and it is critical that conservators thoroughly understand their duties. Attorneys at the law firm of Perez, Williams, Medina & Rodriguez have experience helping conservators not only understand their role, but also navigate any legal issues that may arise.
Death is one of the few guarantees in life. In California, if a person dies without a Will, that person’s estate will pass according to a statutory scheme. Often, the distribution under law is inconsistent with a person’s wishes, so it is important to consider drafting a Will to ensure your wishes are carried out.
