How long does a conservatorship last?
Once a conservatorship is established, the court must review the conservatorship on a periodic basis to make sure that it remains in the best interests of the conservatee. Reviews take place at the following times:
- Six months after the conservatorship is established, a court investigator visits with the conservatee and conducts an investigation. The investigator then makes a report to the court regarding the appropriateness of the conservatorship and whether the conservator is acting in the best interests of the conservatee regarding the conservatee’s placement, quality of care, and finances.
- One year after the appointment of the conservator and annually thereafter. As an alternative, if the court finds that the conservator is acting in the best interests of the conservatee, the court can set subsequent review dates every two years.
