A conservatorship can be a meaningful option, as a last resort, to take in order to acquire an order of the court appointing a competent person to take control of the affairs of someone who is otherwise at risk of financial or physical harm. Conservatorship proceedings are complicated and require precise and knowledgeable communication with the court.
In conservatorship consultations, Mr. Weir will identify the relationship of the petitioner and the proposed conservator (the person nominated manage the conservatorship) to the conservatee (the person for whom a conservatorship is established); any public assistance or social support received by the proposed conservatee; medical opinions by the proposed conservative’s doctor(s) addressing the need for a conservatorship; and alternatives to conservatorship. He will also discuss the nature of a conservatorship proceeding, including how long how long it might take to obtain legal authority to act as conservator, the responsibilities of the conservator, and the anticipated cost of the proceeding.
At the Law Offices of Timothy M. Weir, Mr. Weir offers more than 20 years of successful experience involving probate, trusts and estates, conservatorships and real property.
