A conservatorship is a court proceeding during which the court essentially assumes a guardian-like role over an individual who can no longer make decisions for themselves. This person is referred to as a “conservatee.” During this process, someone will be appointed to make decisions on behalf of the conservatee. That person is referred to as a “conservator.”
A conservatorship can be costly and time consuming. In most cases, a conservatorship can be avoided completely with proper, advance planning. Once you have experienced the conservatorship process with a family member, you will undoubtedly have a new appreciation for proper estate planning.
