When Should I Apply for Limited Conservatorship?
Conservatorship is granted to an individual to help protect an incapacitated person’s financial affairs and estate. Limited conservatorship is a legal appointment that protects an adult with developmental or cognitive disabilities while allowing that person to maintain their independence as much as possible.
A family member or trusted family friend can establish a limited conservatorship for a person with cognitive impairment or a developmental disability. This gives the protected person the freedom to live life with a sort of safety net. The limited conservatorship can provide these types of assistance:
- Assisting with securing the basic needs of food, shelter and clothing
- Paying bills
- Managing investments
- Marriage consent
- Transportation needs
The goal with a limited conservatorship is to allow the protected person to live the comfortable life they choose, as much as possible.
