Conservatorship - A conservator is one who is appointed by the court to manage the estate of a protected person. A Conservatorship may be opened for a minor or for an adult person who is unable to manage their property and affairs for reasons such as having business affairs that may be put at risk or prevented because of the minor's age, or that money is needed for support and eduation and that protection is necessary or desirable to obtain or provide money, or the individual is unable to manage property and business affairs because the individual is unable to effectively receive or evaluate information or both or make or communicate decisions, or the individual has property that will be wasted or dissipated unless management is provided or money is needed for the support, eduation health, and welfare of the individual. C.R.S. 15-14-401

The court may appoint an individual, a trust company, or a bank with general power to serve as trustee, as conservator of the estate of the protected person. An individual appointed must be 21 years of age or older.

Venue for protective proceedings is in the place in this state where the protected person resides, or, if the protected person does not reside in this state, in any place where property is owned.
