Conservatorship Lawyers in Pasadena

Appointing Care for Your Loved One

If you have an adult who depends on you for care because they are disabled or unable to care for themselves, establishing a conservatorship is vital. A conservatorship is the legal appointment of someone who will care for that person and have the right to make financial decisions on his or her behalf. Conservators can be family members, friends, or professional third parties without a personal connection to the conservatee.

At Marilyn Smith Law APC, we are dedicated to providing knowledgeable counsel and representation to those looking to establish conservatorships. The process can be overwhelming but we are here to help.

To seek assistance with these delicate matters, reach out to our Pasadena conservatorship attorneys at (626) 317-6068.

What Are the Duties of a Conservator?

We can help you navigate the legal process of choosing and naming a conservator. This may include stipulating specific responsibilities or actions that are necessary for the quality of the conservatee's life. A conservator has the legal right to make certain decisions for the conservatee and only take actions that are in their best interests.

The duties and responsibilities of a conservator may include:

  • Investing funds
  • Paying taxes
  • Paying bills
  • Handling mortgages
  • Taking care of living expenses
  • Liquidating assets

Conservators must keep very detailed records about their ward’s finances and file court papers regularly. They also remain under court supervision to prevent wards from being taken advantage of. Sometimes, conservators will also have to request permission from the court before making certain major decisions.
