Campbell Conservatorship Attorney
Parents lose parental rights when their child with developmental disabilities attains the age of 18. A limited conservatorship provides the parents with the legal right to continue to protect the interests of their adult child with developmental disabilities. General conservatorships are available to protect the rights of individuals who have lost capacity to manage their personal and/or financial affairs.

Limited Conservatorships for Adult Children
When a developmentally disabled person turns 18, he or she becomes an adult in the eyes of the law, and without the creation of a limited conservatorship, the parents no longer have legal rights regarding that child.
Obviously, the opportunities for exploitation by others, as well as misfortunes through poor judgment or inexperience, make it highly desirable that a trusted family member or friend continues to protect and advocate for the developmentally disabled individual.
Attorney Janet Miller can help persons in this situation file a petition for limited conservatorship. The court will appoint a conservator, usually a parent and/or other close relative, to supervise the most important decisions his or her vulnerable child or sibling might make.
Ms. Miller’s extensive experience in the service system for the disabled proves invaluable in serving families with special needs members. She receives many referrals from that community from parents as well as professionals serving the developmentally disabled population.
Ms. Miller can also establish a special needs trust in conjunction to provide financial security for your adult disabled child.
