The need to contest a Los Angeles legal conservatorship may occur because the parents or family members of the special needs client do not feel as if their loved one is receiving the physical, mental, social and financial help that he or she needs. Sometimes, obtaining a legal conservatorship over an adult child who has recently turned 18 is very easy. However, in some families where there are strained relationships or where there are no parents or adult siblings available to be conservators, the situation can become more stressful.
Contesting a Los Angeles legal conservatorship requires the help of a trained attorney who can walk clients through all the steps of a complicated legal process that could include regional hearings or hearings in a California courtroom.

We understand that family members and loved ones only want what is best for the special needs individual, and we can help ensure that will happen.
What Does a Los Angeles Legal Conservatorship Do?
A Los Angeles legal conservatorship ensures that the special needs client over the age of 18 has someone who can care for the needs that they themselves cannot perform. This could include such things as maintaining finances, obtaining health insurance, finding new living arrangements and setting up medical appointments. The exact items that the conservator will need to take care of are delineated by a judge of the California court system. Conservators are also named as conservators of the person or conservators of the estate. Some people serve as both types of conservator simultaneously. A limited conservator is one who maintains control over some aspects of care but not all aspects.
