2018 Connecticut General Statutes
Title 45a - Probate Courts and Procedure
Chapter 802h - Protected Persons and Their Property
Section 45a-645d - Appointment of successor conservator.
Whenever a Probate Court appoints a conservator of the person or a conservator of the estate, the court may also appoint a successor conservator of the person or successor conservator of the estate. The successor conservator shall act as conservator if the court accepts the resignation of the conservator or removes the conservator or if the conservator is adjudicated incapable or dies. The successor conservator may assume the duties of conservator immediately upon the Probate Court's acceptance of the resignation of the conservator of the person or conservator of the estate or removing such conservator, upon such conservator being adjudicated incapable or upon the death of such conservator, provided a successor conservator of the estate may not assume the duties of conservator of the estate before furnishing a probate bond or providing proof of a restricted account if a bond or restricted account was required from the conservator of the estate. The successor conservator shall immediately inform the Probate Court that has jurisdiction over the conservator of the person or conservator of the estate that the successor conservator assumed the role of conservator of the person or conservator of the estate and the reasons for assuming such role. The Probate Court may issue a decree, without notice and hearing, confirming the successor conservator's appointment after the requirements of this section are met.
