Reliable Guidance From A Conservatorship Attorney
Duncan Legal, PC, is a law firm based out of Centennial. Over the years, estate planning attorney, Carolyn Duncan, has too often seen individuals who have not planned for illness, injury or accidents. Unfortunately, these things do happen and if you do not have your estate prepared then it will be difficult for your loved ones to handle your affairs.
How An Estate Plan Helps
An estate plan will detail your wishes so that your loved ones have clear guidance in regard to handling your estate. A basic estate plan includes:
- Will or trust
- A durable medical power of attorney
- A durable financial power of attorney
When you have a detailed estate plan, your family won’t have to resort to the conservatorship process.
However, if for whatever reason you do not have an established estate plan and something happens to you then your estate will be appointed a conservator. A conservator is a person appointed by the court to make financial decisions and manage your estate.
Generally, conservatorships are established for those who are:
- Mentally disordered
- Suffering from diseases such as dementia or Alzheimer’s
