Those looking for help with Inglewood Legal Conservatorships can turn to a knowledgeable and highly educated attorney with Newman Aaronson Vanaman. Our attorneys specialize only in special education law and work with clients of all ages, including those in elementary school all the way through adulthood. When the special needs child reaches the age of 18, he or she is considered to be an adult in most states. At this time, the parents are no longer allowed so many freedoms over the individual’s life unless they have been appointed as guardian or conservator. Many special needs clients require someone to help them make daily decisions and need someone to help them with their medical records, financial accounts and more.
Differences Between Inglewood Conservatorships
It should be remembered that there is a difference between an Inglewood guardian and a conservator even though these two titles may be awarded to the same person in many cases. A guardian takes charge of the everyday affairs, helping the special needs adult with where they will live, where they will work, what type of medical care they receive and how they will be cared for at home. On the other hand, the conservator helps mainly with financial affairs, including banking, insurance, payroll, and investments. Many times, the courts will choose a close family member, such as a parent or adult sibling to be the conservator. However, in some cases, the special needs client or the courts will determine that an unrelated person will perform the tasks better. Some private individuals perform Inglewood conservatorship tasks for a fee for special needs clients.
