Adoption Law | Portland OR

A conservatorship is the legal term defining the legal relationship of one adult taking care of another individual who cannot care for him or herself. A conservatorship is legally established when a court appoints a responsible adult (called the "conservator") to be legally responsible for, to care for, and to manage the estate and/or affairs of another individual (called the "protected person") who either cannot take care of him or herself and/or cannot manage their own finances.If you have a loved one who can no longer take care of himself or herself, it may be in their best interest to have a conservatorship established to protect his or her overall well-being.
