Bridgman, LLP     


There comes a time in life when a person does not want to or can not continue to care for his or her self. This may be due to an accident, disease or old age. The person who needs care may be a relative, a friend or your next door neighbor.
Sometimes family members or friends are able to care for the person by helping with house cleaning, payment of the bills or balancing the check book. However, such help comes with certain legal risks that need to be evaluated.
There are times when strife in the family or the persons unwillingness to get help require Court supervision of the person in questions.
The obtaining the authority of the Court to control the affairs of a person who can no longer care for himself is called conservatorship.
The process of obtaining that authority requires the filing of certain papers in Court and the approval by the Court of the person who will be the Conservator. The Court will determine the extent of the authority which the Conservator has to control the affairs of the person. Court authority gives the Conservator protection from personal claims but requires that the Conservator comply with the duties set forth in the Probate Code.
Consultation with an attorney is recommended so that proper court approval can be obtained and the conservatorship can be planned. Each situation is different and the conservatorship should be tailored to the individual.

ASPELIN AND BRIDGMAN L.L.P., would be happy to provide a half hour consultation at no charge to explore the possibilities of the creation of a conservatorship or other arrangements for a person in need. Appointments can be arranged by fax, phone or e-mail.
