The California Supreme Court Rules on an LPS Conservatorship
A mental health (LPS) conservatorship makes the conservator responsible for a mentally ill adult. These conservatorships are only for adults with mental illnesses listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). The most common illnesses are serious, biological brain disorders, which include but are not limited to: Schizophrenia, Bi-Polar Disorder (Manic Depression), Schizo-affective Disorder, Clinical Depression, and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. For more information on the Court's ruling see tomorrow's blog.
If you have questions regarding a conservatorship and live in the Los Angeles area you should consult with an experienced Los Angeles probate lawyer.
