There are different types of legal conservatorship, each with its own benefits. Knowing the differences between them is very important for your case.
1. Conservatorship of the person:
A court will order a conservatorship if your loved one's health is at risk because they cannot obtain their own food, shelter, and other basic needs. Benefits include:
• Provides assistance for your loved one if their health is as risk but they refuse or are unable to obtain help
• Allows you to obtain medical information and communicate with your loved one's healthcare professionals
• Allows you to have legal authority to make basic personal and healthcare decisions
2. Conservatorship of the estate:
A conservatorship of the estate is an order to protect the finances of your loved one if they cannot competently handle their own debts and income or cannot resist undue financial pressure from others. This gives you the legal authority to make good financial decisions for the protected person and to sign checks and other financial documents.
3. Limited conservatorship for a developmentally disabled adult
A limited conservatorship authorizes the conservator to be responsible for part of a developmentally disabled adult's life and finances as specified and ordered by the court. The disabled will generally retain all of their rights, and the conservator is legally required to seek treatment services and opportunities to help the disabled become as independent as possible.
