What Are Conservatorship Petitions In Arizona?

Conservatorship is a legal process in which an individual, known as the conservator, is appointed by a court to manage the financial affairs of another individual, known as the conservatee, who is unable to do so themselves due to mental or physical incapacity. In Arizona, any individual interested in becoming a conservator must file a petition with the court.

How Do I Establish Proof Of Authority In Arizona?

Proof of Authority is an Estate Administration process where an out-of-state personal representative domesticates their letters of appointment to show proof of their authority in Arizona.  That’s a process we can help with. This is typically used when there is a piece of property in Arizona that the foreign personal representative needs to sell. The title underwriter has the ultimate decision on whether they will accept a Proof of Authority or require the foreign personal representative to apply for and obtain Letters of Appointment in Arizona.

The process for becoming a conservator in Arizona begins by filing a petition with the court. Unlike Proof of Authority, the petition for conservatorship does not require a doctor’s report. However, it must be accompanied by other supporting documents and a proposed plan for the conservatorship. The court will review the petition and determine whether or not to appoint a conservator.

If the court decides to appoint a conservator, they will hold a hearing to determine the scope of the conservator's authority and responsibilities. The conservator will then be responsible for managing the conservatee's financial and personal affairs, including their healthcare, housing, and other daily needs.

If you are considering becoming a conservator in Arizona, it is recommended that you seek the advice of an experienced attorney who can guide you through the process and help ensure that your rights and the rights of the conservatee are protected.
