A limited conservatorship gives a responsible person, called a limited conservator, certain rights to care for another adult who has a developmental disability.
A limited conservator's duty is to help the limited conservatee develop maximum self-reliance and independence. Because developmentally disabled adults can usually do many things on their own, the judge will only give the limited conservator power to do things the conservatee cannot do without help.
If you have a developmentally disabled child who is approaching 18, it is time to prepare. You will no longer be able to make decisions for your child or handle their affairs without getting a court to approve a limited conservatorship for your child. I can help you get appointed.
