CAPACITY DECLARATION FOR CONSERVATORSHIPS IN CALIFORNIA 

LOS ANGELES | SIRKIN LAW GROUP


To establish a Conservatorship in California, a Los Angeles Petitioner is required to file a form called a Capacity Declaration with the Court which is to establish capacity by a physician or psychologist's declaration.   When the proposed conservatee needs psychotropic medication or a secured perimeter facility authorization, there is also an attachment which needs to be included.
