The Law Office of Raoul J. LeClerc is a distinguished law firm based in Oroville, California. We provide in-depth legal assistance for those who are seeking assistance in estate planning. When you take the time to plan ahead for your “golden years” then you will be saving both you and your family time and money.
Our estate planning attorney highly recommends that you take the necessary steps to establish an estate plan while you are still healthy. An estate plan will detail all of your wishes and as a result will provide clear guidance to your estate administrators. Therefore, you and your family won’t have to resort to the conservatorship process.
In the event that you do not have your affairs in order and something happens to you then most likely you will be appointed a conservatorship by the court. Once appointed by the court a conservator has court-ordered authority to manage the affairs of those who can no longer make their own decisions.
Generally, conservatorships are established for those who are:
• Mentally disordered
• Suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s
It is important to note that conservatorships are both time consuming and expensive as they require court hearings and ongoing assistance from an attorney.
Our knowledgeable estate planning attorney can help you navigate your case no matter what point in the process you are in currently. We are here to help and invite you to schedule an initial consultation at our Oroville, California office.
