What is Limited Conservatorship?
A limited conservatorship is specifically designed for a developmentally disabled child (“conservatee”) transitioning into adulthood. Once the disabled child reaches the age of 18, his or her parents are no longer able to make personal medical, and financial decisions for him or her. They therefore, may seek a limited conservatorship of the estate and/or person. Parents can set up a limited conservatorship to protect their developmentally disabled child and assist with personal affairs, medical decisions, and financial matters. This should be filed before the proposed conservatee’s 18th birthday, but can also be filed after.
