I still can't believe something like this even exists, especially in the US where they always talk so much about their freedom and their rights and whatever, it's like, who did even come up with a concept as evil as this? :idgi_dont_get_it_how_confused_what_hmm_umm_thinking: With so much potential for abuse.

It would only made sense if in a conservatorship, it was the government the one paying the conservator and providing for the conservatee needs, or at least for the lawyers. It also doesn't make any sense that the conservator has to receive a payment. I think for example about a situation where you have a senile parent, you take care of them, without receiving a payment, I mean, if you're gonna take the responsibility of taking care of someone, you do it for free, not expecting to quit your job and live off their money. What difference does it make if the conservatee has $50 or $50M dollars in their account? That's their money, and it's to cover their needs, not yours.

I mean at the very least the fees should be capped. Like say foster parents, they all get paid the same statewide, a little more for special needs and such. But it’s like $1,000 a month. The pay rate should be the same if the person has $1,000 in their bank or 40million.

Cship is bussiness for sure. And ppl running it has a lot to loose.  The fact that court appointed lawyer or conservator gets more money than conservatee is disturbing. And they can have more than 1 conservatee.  And unlimited control of some1s live. It is scary

Yes, Expose them! :clownery_makeup_meme: 

Change is needed, more oversight, restrict the income and powers the conservators and lawyers currently have. The voice and wants of the conservatee should be top priority. Civil rights and choice of attorneys should never be restricted or denied. 

Judges need to be more involved and hold lawyers accountable. Stop treating each case like administrative papers just needing a judge’s signature.
 

Each case is unique and the conservators should have the responsibility to prove that the conservatorship is needed annually not the conservatee proving they don’t need it. It’s so backwards and disturbing. California needs to wake up to this mess. :tina_judging_side_eye_glance_staring_looking_red:
