There are two major types of conservatorships: general conservatorships and limited conservatorships. General conservatorships are typically sought for adults who are unable to provide for their personal needs due to physical injury, dementia, or any other reason, all of which makes them susceptible to undue influence. This typically happens when adult children petition the court for conservatorship over an aging parent because the parent suffers from conditions that make it difficult to manage their life and make their own decisions.

Limited conservatorships are quite similar to regular conservatorships; however, the persons in these cases are not aging adults, but rather, developmentally disabled adults. This typically happens when an individual has a learning or other mental disability that renders them unable to manage their own affairs or perform daily tasks of living without assistance.

The process of establishing a conservatorship can be extremely complex and time-consuming. Additionally, it could be contested by the state, and must be argued in front of a judge. If you do not present your case properly, the judge will not grant your petition. Hiring an experienced attorney who has gone through the process, who understands the legal procedures involved, and also how the process affects family dynamics will ensure that your objectives are met.
