What is a conservatorship?

I'm seeing this trend in relation to Britney Spears—what does she apparently need freeing from?

When an adult is incapable of making decisions about their own life, a conservatorship can be a way to help them. A conservator takes responsibility for the conservatee's personal life and/or finances, making sure the conservatee is taken care of.

In Britney Spears' case, her father and a lawyer were named her conservators in 2008 after her very public breakdown. They controlled both the personal and financial aspects of Britney's life until 2019, when the lawyer stepped down and Britney's dad temporarily relinquished his conservatorship over her personal life to a "care manager."

It's back in the news now because this arrangement is temporary, set to expire on Aug. 22, 2020. A judge might renew it, but some fans are convinced Britney wants out of the conservatorship entirely, going as far as trending "#FreeBritney" in an effort to show support for the Princess of Pop. Here's hoping it all works out for the best.

Conservatorship is a legal concept in the United States. A guardian or a protector is appointed by a judge to manage the financial affairs and/or daily life of another due to physical or mental limitations, or old age and thats it

This term when used legally refers to a person appointed by the court to have control over the financescand/or health care of persons mentally incapable of taking care of themselves. It is a fiduciary position overseen by the Courts as there is a loss of control once the appointment is made. The conservator is typically a family member, but does not have to be. Many places also have a public official that fills this role for persons who do not have anyone willing to serve as a conservator.

Yes. Once a conservator is appointed by the court the power of attorney is extinguished.

Check with your States Laws on Conservatorship as opposed to Legal Guardian.

Depends on the laws where you are and the arrangement with the uncle.

You apply to the court for their conservatorship. They will provide the appropriate authorization.

Some civil rights remain with the person under a Conservatorship. However, all but very few basic civil rights are given to the general Conservator. A person under conservatorship retains those civil or constitutional rights not specifically given away by the court. The person under a Conservatorship retains such rights as the ability to hire an attorney to challenge the Conservatorship or seek redress and the power to release medical records,There are different sub-types of conservatorships in different jurisdictions. Generally, a Conservator of a persons estate is responsible for handling the financial affairs of the principal. A Conservator of the person is appointed to make decisions about personal physical needs such as residence, clothing, health needs, food, admission to a nursing home, etc. The civil rights retained by the principal may vary under the various types of Conservatorships.

Of course not. A conservatorship is allowed by a court. No one but the court has the right to "take it away" from the conservator. The step-children can petition to have the conservator removed and replaced. It will be up to a judge to decide. You should consult with an attorney who can review your situation and explain your options.

You have to file in court for a guardianship or a conservatorship. You have to prove that they are mentally unfit to control their money.

That is going to be a complicated issue. You will need the help of an attorney in your state or other jurisdiction who understands the family law in your area.

Someone close to the ward must petition the court requesting appointment as Conservator. You can inquire about the procedure at your local probate and family court.

Texas law does not address this, but generally the biological mothers always oppose it, or violate the orders with immunity, just as they do in heterosexual relationships.

Shes not "in trouble" for anything. But if you are refferring to her conservatorship, she was placed under that because the court decided that she was unable to make good choices in her life based on her mental state.

You can not obtain power of attorney from someone who is not competent, however you can take steps through a probate or family court to establish a guardianship and conservatorship.

Your local attorney can advise you whether you may have "standing" to petition the court to release conservator accounting information, absent any specific allegations or proof of malfeasance.

A guardianship attorney petitions for hearing on the behalf of the person or persons seeking guardianship or conservatorship and are usually a requirement when wanted to set up a guardianship. These lawyers typically specialize in estate planning, wills, and elder law.

NO. A conservator cannot revoke a testator's will. The courts view a Last Will and Testament with great respect. A testator has the right to decide how their own property will be distributed at their death. Tampering with a testator's will is a serious offense.

I live in the state of Texas and am looking to print a form that I may take to a judge for filing purposes pertaining to joint parenting or joint management conservatorship. Any ideas where I may obtain this?

User Avatar

An executor of a will is responsible in distributing the property according to the twill. Qualifications for an executor include being over the age of 18, not have committed fraud or wrongfully neglected the estate, not be a business partner if another person with an interest in the business objects, not be subject to a conservatorship and to be a US resident.

No, a POA can only be revoked or amended by the person who awarded it, or in some instances by the court. If the person is not competent enough to amend or revoke the order and it is necessary to do so, a petition of guardianship and/or conservatorship will need to be filed with the Probate Court.
