The Probate Court becomes involved in the lives of individuals who are incapable of caring for themselves and/or their property. The Court is entrusted with the responsibility of protecting the interests of these individuals. This duty is carried out by the appointment of a conservator, who is authorized by law to provide supervision and who is, in many respects, an agent of the Court. As there are various types of conservatorships, it is recommended that anyone considering a conservatorship contact the Court, as well as competent legal counsel.
