What Is a Conservator?

A conservator is a person who is appointed by the court to manage the estate of a person who is unable to care for him or herself. The conservator is responsible for managing the financial affairs and personal care of the person who is unable to care for himself or herself. The conservator is also referred to as a guardian or a conservator of the estate. The conservator is responsible for the care and well-being of the person who is unable to care for himself or herself.

What are the Responsibilities of a Conservator?

A conservator is responsible for:

  • Managing the financial affairs of the person who is unable to care for himself or herself
  • Ensuring the person who is unable to care for himself or herself receives necessary care
  • Managing the personal affairs of the person who is unable to care for himself or herself

What is Incapacity?

In New York, there is no specific definition of "incapacity." However, incapacity may be defined as the inability to manage one's own affairs, care for one's self, or meet one's own basic needs. This can be caused by a physical or mental condition. A person who is unable to care for himself or herself may need a conservator appointed to manage his or her financial and personal affairs.

Some examples of incapacity may include:

  • Advanced age
  • Alzheimer's or dementia
  • Diseases of the nervous system
  • Mental illness
  • Physical disability
  • Substance abuse
  • Traumatic brain injury

If you are concerned about the well-being of a loved one, it is important to seek the assistance of an attorney who can assist you with obtaining a conservator for your loved one. Our compassionate attorneys will work with you to obtain the appropriate conservator for your loved one.

How Does Someone Become a Conservator?

In order to become a conservator, the person must be nominated by one of the following:

  • The person who is unable to care for himself or herself
  • The person's spouse
  • An adult child
  • An adult sibling
  • A grandchild
  • A grandparent
  • Any other adult family member
