Process For Becoming A Conservator In California
A Confidential Conservatorship Screening form is also needed. Your attorney will use the form to document your relationship with the other party and provide background information. Finally, your attorney will go over the Duties of Conservator form with you. It outlines the expectations if you take on the role. Your lawyer will make sure you understand it fully before signing. Then, your lawyer will file the paperwork with the court.
Next, your attorney will serve a notice to your loved one and a copy to his or her relatives. After a court investigator reviews the information, he or she will visit the individual and write a report to submit to the court. Then, the court will make a decision on the conservatorship.
