Disputes Regarding Conservatorships

A conservator is appointed by the Probate court to oversee the conserved person's health, care, education, and certain legal decisions on the person's behalf. 

A conservator may sue and be sued on behalf of the protected person.

Disputes in conservatorship situations can relate to just about anything. Since the appointment of a conservator revokes, to some degree, the liberty of the protected person, disputes can relate to the need for the appointment or the reservation of certain rights and liberties. 

Sometimes the protected person or a family member is unhappy about who is seeking appointment and why they are doing so. Sometimes, the conservator’s decisions regarding medical care treatment, visitation and placement become an issue.

In conservatorship cases, disputes often relate to questions about the use of the protected person's finances both before and after the conservator's appointment.
