A Conservator may be appointed to protect the property and business affairs of a person in need of protection. Typically, the protected person is unable to manage property and business affairs effectively because of a clinically diagnosed impairment in the ability to receive and evaluate information or make or communicate decisions, even with the use of appropriate technological assistance.

A Conservator should be appointed only when necessary, and then with only those powers that are necessitated by the individual’s actual limitations. For example, if appropriate, a Conservatorship may be limited or apply only to investments or real estate and leave to the protected person the ability to receive pension income and pay for daily or monthly expenses.

While a Petition for the Appointment of a Conservator is pending, if a person to be protected has no Conservator, and the Court finds that an immediate and/or urgent situation exists that will likely result in substantial harm to the property, income or entitlements of the person to be protected or those entitled to the person’s support, and no other person appears to have authority to act in the circumstances, on appropriate motion, the Court may appoint a Temporary Conservator who may exercise only those specific powers granted in the Order, typically for a 90-day period.

We look forward to listening to you and answering questions you may have pertaining to Conservatorships. Contact Kurland & Grossman, P.C., to schedule an appointment.
