When a court determines that a person is unable to provide for his or her own health care, food, shelter or clothing, a conservator is appointed. The conservatorship may be over the person of the conservatee (deciding things like where the conservatee lives, his or her medical care, etc.) or over the estate of the conservatee (managing the conservatee’s assets), or both. Complete Probate is appointed by the court to act in place of these disabled persons.
Often, when a person dies without leaving a will, and there are no family members able or willing to wind up the deceased person’s affairs, the court will appoint an administrator to serve in this capacity. Complete Probate is appointed and assesses the situation. Businesses have to be sold or liquidated, repairs made to real property in order to facilitate sale, etc. Complete Probate marshals the assets, converts them to a liquid form, and acts to maximize the distributions to beneficiaries.
Complete Probate acts as trustee in various types of trusts: living trusts, testamentary trusts, etc. Often these arise out of situations where a conservatorship is initially proposed, but Complete Probate, together with its counsel, determine that a trust is a better vehicle to accomplish the objectives.
Conservator fees are $175 per hour, Social work and case management fees are $155 per hour, Financial & Asset management and bond & tax prep are $155 per hour and Administrative tasks & Bill paying are $85 per hour.
