News of Charlie Sheen’s intense lifestyle revolving around drugs, alcohol, and parties, has been circulating around the press for months. Just recently, an article published by NY Daily News, discusses the possibility of Sheen’s parents trying to obtain a conservatorship over the party boy actor.
A conservator is a responsible individual who is appointed by a judge to care for another adult who cannot care for either himself or his finances. A person who believes they would make an effective conservator for a loved one, can file for conservatorship in court. A spouse, relative, or state or local government agency, friend, or any interested person can file for conservatorship.
There are two types of conservators. The first type is known as the “conservator of the estate.” A conservator of the estate handles the finances of the conservatee. The second type of conservatorship is the “conservator of the person.” This is a conservator who looks after and protects a person in relation to their healthcare, living arrangements, etc.
