The Law Firm Of Fox And Fox — Quality Conservatorships Representation For Southern California
During your free consultation with our experienced Los Angeles conservatorships lawyers, differences between conservatorships and guardianships will be clearly spelled out, such as:
In a conservatorship, a person oversees the personal care and financial matters of the “conservatee” — the person deemed to be unable to manage his or her affairs, and therefore possibly vulnerable to the control of others.
The client will need to decide whether to apply for a Conservatorship of the Person, Conservatorship of the Estate, or both. Conservators of the person are responsible for seeing that the minor or senior receives the necessities of life — food, shelter and health care. Conservators are additionally tasked with handling the special needs or incapacitated person’s finances and assets.
The Law Firm of Fox and Fox can help you decide which option is right for you and the conservatee — whether you need a conservatorship of the person, of the estate, or both. We then take charge of all required filings, preparation of documents and participation in court appearances. Contact one of our skilled conservatorship lawyers by calling 323-937-4422.
