What Is A Probate Conservatorship?

A probate conservatorship is a court proceeding where a judge appoints a responsible person (called a conservator) to care for another adult who cannot care for him/herself or his/her finances (called a conservatee). The person the Court appoints as conservator must be very responsible.

There are two kinds of conservators:

  • A conservator of the person cares for and protects a person when the judge decides that the person (called the "conservatee") cannot do it.
  • A conservator of the estate handles the conservatee’s financial matters – like paying bills and collecting a person's income – if the judge decides the conservatee cannot do it.
