Challenging a Conservatorship in Oceanside, Carlsbad and Laguna Hills, CA
A conservatorship action may be necessary when an individual over the age of 18 is unable or unwilling to manage care for his or her physical or financial matters. Petitions for conservatorship are complex and may include requisite reports and detailed accountings. If the petition is approved, the probate court will appoint a conservator to manage the well-being of the conservatee. Often, the conservator is a spouse, relative, or friend. In some cases, the court will appoint a private professional fiduciary who will act as conservator.
There are several reasons for a conservatorship to be contested, including:
- Family members disagree about the level of care for an aging relative.
- Siblings fight for control over an incapacitated parent.
- A conservator spouse inflicts physical or financial abuse on a spouse with dementia
- The family disagrees over the necessity of a medical procedure.
- A family member is attempting to gain unlawful control over the finances of an elderly relative.
