Lakewood Conservatorships Lawyers
Protecting the financial affairs of a person because of age or mental or physical disability
The court may establish a conservatorship for a minor if it determines that the minor owns money or property requiring management or protection that cannot otherwise be provided or has or may have business affairs that may be put at risk or prevented because of the minor’s age. A court may also grant a conservatorship for a minor if money is needed for support or education and such protection is necessary or desirable to obtain or provide that money.
A conservatorship may also be granted for any individual, including a minor, if the court determines for reasons other than age that the individual is unable to manage property because of a disability or that the individual has property that will be wasted or dissipated unless management is provided or money is needed for the support, care, education, health and welfare of the individual.
If a family member is no longer able to manage his or her money, a conservatorship may be appropriate.
