4 years ago my brother was appointed conservator and guardian of my mom who is a disabled, my brother and I don't necessarily get along but I didn't fight any of this because I lived in TX at the time (Family was in MI) my family relocated to MI last year so now I'm more involved.
My brother decided to not go to court for 1 1/2 years to report inventory, so he was "fired" and the court appointed a conservator. She's now cleaning up his mess.
My brother is still her guardian.
CAN *I* petition to be conservator? The court appointed conservator mentioned that when she was done cleaning up the mess, they would appoint someone else "maybe me" but it definitely wouldn't be my brother.
I'm still weighing pros and cons and don't even know if I WANT! this job. But can I do this while the court appointed conservator is still doing her job?? I don't really like the idea of a court appointed anything taking care of my mom's finances (no offense, it just seems scary) there is no money, so I'm not worried about that, I just feel like my family should be taking care of this stuff? (Well not my brother)
