We have significant experience guiding clients through the conservatorship process, from determining the type of conservatorship needed to handling all required filings, document preparation, and necessary court appearances.
Advice & Guidance for Conservators
Because conservatorships convey very broad and deep powers over another person, courts are very strict and exacting in conservatorship procedures, both during and after the appointment of a conservator. We help conservators assess and fulfill their fiduciary obligations and responsibilities with regard to a conservatee’s living arrangements, health care, finances, income, assets, budget, and other duties assigned to a conservator.
In addition to helping clients establish and administer conservatorships, Stevenson Law Office handles conservatorship litigation, which may arise when someone contests the appointment of a certain conservator or when there is an allegation that a conservator has breached a fiduciary duty to the conservatee. Conservatorship litigation may also involve the removal of a conservator and/or the appointment of a successor conservator, as well as investigations into capacity, fraud, and elder abuse, among other issues.
