What happens when your adult child becomes incapacitated due to substance abuse or mental health issues? Sadly, for many families this is a reality. Cher and her son are under scrutiny over her petition for a conservatorship. Cher filed for a conservatorship for her son Elijah Blue Allman, 47, to manage his finances ‘due to severe mental health and substance abuse issues.’
Elijah recently filed a response in court stating that while he has had issues with substance abuse and irresponsible spending, he is on the right path now. He states he recently passed a drug test and is willing to undergo more to ensure he can continue to receive the funds from the Trust his father left him. Additionally, he stated that a more appropriate party to handle his conservatorship would be his wife. The couple was undergoing a divorce, which Elijah is now dismissing.
Legal protections using Estate Planning tools such as adult guardianships and conservatorship can be essential when someone becomes incapacitated and can no longer safely manage their own finances, health and personal affairs.
