Conservatorship means assets becoming public records because of the court process it goes through, and it is difficult to avoid the process when one has become mentally incapacitated.  As a result, it takes thorough planning while still mentally competent in order to avoid the complicated process and expenses of conservatorship.  There are several ways to avoid that having your asset placed by a court according to About.com.  If you title your assets jointly with someone else, the other person automatically have the authorization to access and manage bank accounts, investments, and more.  Another way to go about this is the power of attorney, either a general power of attorney, one through an advanced medical directive from your primary doctor,  or one through financial institutions.  Lastly, one of the more efficient way is through a revocable living trust. It is always important to make sure that there are specific provisions for when and if the person becomes mentally incapacitated, and that always take the time to fund the trust because anything outside the trust can be subjected to conservatorship.
