Conservatorship Attorneys In Cleveland

There are times when children need someone other than their parents to look after their best interests. Likewise, sometimes grownups need someone they can look to for decisions that will safeguard their interests.

The Cleveland conservatorship lawyers at Kathryn T. Joseph & Associates, Inc., have helped Cuyahoga County and Ohio families set up conservatorships and guardianships for the past 25 years, so that vulnerable people of all ages can have access to the protection they need and deserve.

What Is A Conservatorship?

Conservatorship consists of the appointment by a probate court of an individual, known as the conservator, to act on behalf of another adult who is competent but physically infirm, otherwise known as the conservatee. The person who is physically infirm must consent to the appointment of the conservator and will determine what responsibilities the conservator will have. Conservatee's rights attorneys Kathryn Joseph, Sarah Lukwinski-Shemo and Jeremy Ray regularly serve as the conservator for individuals in the Greater Cleveland area.

The court will then oversee the conservator's actions, in accordance with probate law, to ensure that the conservatee's best interests are being served.

A conservatorship is different from a guardianship in many ways; the most important being that a conservatee is physically unable to care for some parts of their life, but they are competent to make important decisions on their own.
