Event description

Description

No pre-registrations taken. Register on day of event. First-come first-served.

In California, many families struggle to care for adults who are not able to care for themselves. A conservatorship is a proceeding where a judge appoints a responsible person or organization to assist an adult with a disability with personal care or finances. This session provides general information about the court process and help in preparing and filing documents to be appointed as a probate conservator.

Class covers:

  • Screening for appropriateness of probate conservatorships or available alternatives
  • Obtaining referrals for other types of assistance
  • Overview of conservatorship law
  • Rights of the conservatee and responsibilities of the conservator
  • The court forms needed to file for a conservatorship
  • The petitioning process—what to expect before and after the hearing
  • The post-hearing process

Walk-ins welcome. First come, first served.
