Title 45a - Probate Courts and Procedure
Chapter 802h - Protected Persons and Their Property
Section 45a-667o - Petitions for involuntary representation filed in more than one state.
Except for a petition for the appointment of a temporary conservator of the person or a temporary conservator of the estate in an emergency under subdivision (1) of subsection (a) of section 45a-667j, if a petition for involuntary representation is filed in this state and a petition for appointment of a conservator of the person or issuance of a conservator of the estate order is filed in another state and neither petition has been dismissed or withdrawn, the following rules apply:
(1) If the court of probate has jurisdiction under section 45a-667i, it may proceed with the case unless a court in another state acquires jurisdiction under provisions similar to those in section 45a-667i before the appointment or issuance of the order.
(2) If the court of probate does not have jurisdiction under subdivision (1) or (2) of section 45a-667i, whether at the time the petition is filed or at any time before the appointment or issuance of the order, the court shall stay the proceeding and communicate with the court in the other state. If the court in the other state has jurisdiction, the court of probate shall dismiss the petition unless the court in the other state determines that the court of probate is a 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.
