If a person is no longer capable of safe and effective self-care, another person must step up to help. That person can have the power and authority to act on behalf of the incapacitated one if the court grants it to the former. In other words, when the court favors the application for a conservatorship.
Now, conservatorship, as we know it, can be a complex matter to tackle. We often hear in the news about legal battles involving conservatorship proceedings. For instance, a family member may question a court’s appointment. However, one can avoid such a scenario when someone expert in the matter is there to help through the process.
