Probate Conservatorship: Judicial Council Forms to Implement the California Conservatorship Jurisdiction Act (Action Required)

 

body

Summary

Summary

Legislation enacted in 2014 added the California Conservatorship Jurisdiction Act (CCJA) to the Probate Code. This legislation requires the Judicial Council to revise an existing form and adopt new forms to implement the act. To comply with this mandate, the Probate and Mental Health Advisory Committee proposes revision of the existing form and adoption of three new forms.

Recommendation

Recommendation

The Probate and Mental Health Advisory Committee recommends that, effective January 1, 2016, the Judicial Council:

1.                     Adopt three new forms required by the CCJA to implement the foreign conservatorship registration provisions of the law, the Conservatorship Registration Cover Sheet and Attestation of Conservatee’s Non-Residence in California (form GC-360); the Notice of Intent to Register Conservatorship (form GC-361), and the Conservatorship Registrant’s Acknowledgment of Receipt of Handbook for Conservators (form GC-362); and

2.                     Revise the Petition for Appointment of Probate Conservator (form GC-310) to add an inquiry, required by the CCJA, about the proposed conservatee’s possible connections to a federally recognized Indian tribe and also to inquire about the petitioner’s state of knowledge about conservatorship or similar proceedings filed concerning the proposed conservatee in jurisdictions other than California.
