A conservatorship is a legal “tool” that provides management for the financial and/or personal affairs of individuals deemed by the court to be physically or mentally incapacitated.
What is an Arizona Probate Conservator?
In a conservatorship, a Conservator is a manager appointed by the court to protect the health and welfare of an adult. A conservator may serve as an Arizona Probate Conservator of the Estate or an Arizona Probate Conservator of the Person. A Conservator of the Person will protect a person unable to provide for basic needs like food, shelter and clothing. A Conservator of the Estate is named to handle the financial affairs and protect the resources of someone unable to handle their own finances or unable to resist fraud or undue influence. Arizona Fiduciary Services is licensed to serve as both Conservator of the Person and Conservator of the Estate.
While any competent person may be appointed to serve as an Arizona probate conservator, we recommend that you select a Professional Private Fiduciary to be your probate conservator. Licensed Private Fiduciaries are held to the highest standards of accountability, and offer a higher level of experience and competence than non-professional individuals acting in the same capacity may be able to offer. In addition, families often find that naming a licensed and professional objective party helps to ease family tensions during difficult situations.
