Protection Of Individuals Subject To A Fiduciary

Concerning the protection of individuals subject to a fiduciary.
2020 Regular Session
Probate, Trusts, & Fiduciaries
Bill Summary

For petitions for wards or conservators, the bill requires a petitioner to conduct a prehearing conference with the minor or potentially incapacitated person and persons who may assist the minor or potentially incapacitated person. The petitioner must include a report of the prehearing conference with the petition and mail the petition and report to any person who participated in the prehearing conference. If a court appoints as an emergency guardian or special conservator a professional person or protective services, the court shall also appoint a court visitor to interview the respondent and others and report to the court on the supported decision-making surrounding the respondent.

Current law allows a court on its own motion or at the request of an interested person to conduct an emergency review of a fiduciary's actions. The bill requires the judge to rule on the motion or request within 14 days.
