(2) On the date a petition for involuntary representation is filed, this state is a significant-connection state, and:
(A) The respondent does not have a home state or a court of the respondent's home state has declined to exercise jurisdiction because this state is a more appropriate forum; or
(B) The respondent has a home state, a petition for appointment of a conservator of the person or issuance of a conservator of the estate order is not pending in a court of that state or another significant-connection state, and, before the court makes the appointment or issues the order:

(3) A court of probate in this state does not have jurisdiction under subdivision (1) or (2) of this subsection, the respondent's home state and all significant-connection states have declined to exercise jurisdiction because this state is the more appropriate forum, and jurisdiction in this state is consistent with the statutes of this state and the Constitution of this state and the Constitution of the United States; or
(4) The requirements for special jurisdiction under section 45a-667j are met.
