Ask anyone who has never been an Executor of a will and they’ll tell you it’s an honor.
Ask anyone who has already done the job and they’ll tell you it was more time-consuming than they could have imagined.
The role of the Conservator is even less forgiving. Questions about what to expect may elicit blank looks; not many estates professionals work through the process often enough to know the answers. The Conservator has many broad powers as well as some limitations; because this role is court-appointed there are legal filings required and court oversight on some actions. The seemingly daily decisions regarding the person and the estate can feel overwhelming and relentless. Despite the numerous responsibilities, it is an important role, nonetheless.
This CPE webinar looks at the general and specific responsibilities of the role and offers a look at the expectations a Conservator will face, from someone in the trenches. Whether you are an appointed Conservator or counsel people who are, this course will inform and instruct you using real-world situations.
This online CPE course is led by Ilene Slatko, a speaker and serial entrepreneur who currently coaches clients working through the long tail of administrative and financial tasks involved in the estate process.
Wherever you are on the estate planning spectrum, this interactive CPE webinar will guide you in managing expectations for Conservators.
