Your Guide Through Conservatorship Proceedings

You keep a close eye on your loved ones as they get older. When you see them needing help with day-to-day issues, you work toward creating a plan that provides everyone involved with peace of mind. But what happens if they can care for their physical needs, but start making questionable financial decisions? What should you do to make sure that they are not being taken advantage of by others?

When you need to help a loved one protect his or her assets, you may look to have a conservatorship put in place. A conservatorship appoints an individual to make financial decisions for the person named in the document. Often, this means that you or a sibling will make decisions for your elderly parents.

Finding The Right Approach To Help You Reduce Conflict

At McDonald Warner, we regularly work with families that have questions about conservatorship proceedings. We are able to assist you with any step of the process, and we will be there for you from beginning to end. If problems arise at any step, we are here to help you find the right approach to try to reduce the conflict between interested parties.

Whenever the finances of an elderly loved one become an issue of discussion, it is not uncommon for different people to have different opinions about what should be done. Some family members may not be onboard with the idea of a conservatorship or may object to a specific person having control over the loved one’s assets.

We see this often in our cases, and we have the necessary experience to deal with contested conservatorship proceedings from either side. We are experienced trial attorneys, and we know how to prepare a strong case for our clients. You can trust that we will be ready to help you navigate the process as efficiently as possible, working diligently to help you get results.
