Baton Rouge Conservatorship Attorney
Appointing Care for the Disabled - Call (225) 228-4445
If you have an adult dependent who is unable to care for him or herself due to physical disability or mental illness, one of the objectives in your estate planning will be to establish a legal conservatorship to care for that person in your absence. It is important to select someone for this duty who will assume the significant responsibilities of the position, which include maintaining a healthy relationship with the conservatee.
At the Law Office of Wendra J. Moran, I offer strong, caring counsel at a flat-fee rate in order to help you establish a conservatorship.
What will the duties of a conservator be? First, they will have the responsibility of managing the disabled individual's finances. This could include liquidizing assets and investing funds as well as paying taxes, mortgages, insurance, and other bills. The conservator will also need to decide where they will live and how they will be cared for. All of the living expenses such as healthcare, maintenance, education, food, and clothing, will also be their responsibility to handle.
The Importance of Choosing a Conservator
By appointing a conservator in your will, you can stipulate the specific actions that you believe are important to give your loved one the quality of life they deserve, and to protect them from conditions that might be harmful. You don't want to leave it up to the court to appoint a conservator, which make decisions that you disagree with. However, if you pre-select a person for the job, you can set specific parameters for the type of care you deem best. You will be able to have peace of mind knowing that your loved one's needs are being taken care of.
