When handling a conservator appointment, must it be a person?
Starting with the location of the prospective ward and the court’s jurisdiction, probate court jurisdiction over the appointment of a conservator derives from MCL 700.5402 (a). This statute is a mirror of the standards for jurisdiction over guardianships, as set forth in MCL 700.5301(b). This white paper reviews these two statutes and provides practice tips when handling the appointment of a conservator.
