Los Angeles Conservatorship Lawyer
Explaining Probate Conservatorships of the Person & Estate
There are many different types of conservatorships that can be sought under California law - however, the two main types are those that are sought under the Lanterman-Petris-Short Act (referred to as
LPS conservatorships) and those that are sought under the Probate Code. The kind that is sought under the Probate Code is commonly shortened to a probate conservatorship and is granted when a person is deemed to be unable to care for themselves and / or their property - typically because they are disabled or incapacitated in some way.
This conservatorship is divided even more so that the courts can grant the position of the Conservator of the Person and the Conservator of the Estate. When someone is appointed as the Conservator of the Person, they are given the legal ability to care for the conservatee's personal matters - such as their health, their clothing and even where they reside. On the other hand, when someone is appointed as the Conservator of the Estate, they are given the responsibility of managing the finances and property of the conservatee - having the ability to make transactions, borrow morning and even purchase land.
