When a person is not able to handle his or her own financial affairs, a court can appoint an individual or professional to act on behalf of that person. This requires a specific legal process, and hiring an experienced and skilled lawyer can be very advantageous.
Generally, there are two types of conservatorships, conservatorships of minor children, and conservatorships of incapacitated adults. In both instances, the probate court has jurisdiction to determine if a conservator is necessary and who should be the conservator of the minor child or incapacitated adult. Also, in both instances there is a process in which the minor or incapacitated adult is notified along with the nearest of kin, in order to assure their rights are fully protected.
