Conservatorships are necessary for those who do not have a durable power of attorney in place. A durable power of attorney is a written document appointing a person to make your health care decisions and manage your assets, in the event of your incapacitation. This is a document which is included in your estate plan. Failing to plan ahead for incapacitation will result in a court appointed and court-supervised Conservator, which will make your incapacity public information. Planning your estate can prevent this costly and time-consuming process.
