Termination of conservatorship.
Termination of conservatorship.—
At any time upon petition signed by the absentee, or on petition of an attorney in fact acting under an adequate power of attorney granted by the absentee, the court shall direct the termination of the conservatorship and the transfer of all property held thereunder to the absentee or to the designated attorney in fact.
Likewise, if at any time subsequent to the appointment of a conservator it shall appear that the absentee has died and an executor or administrator has been appointed for her or his estate, the court shall direct the termination of the conservatorship and the transfer of all property of the deceased absentee held thereunder to such executor or administrator.
When the need for a conservatorship terminates, the conservator shall promptly file her or his final returns and application for discharge with the court. If it appears to the court that the returns are correct and that the conservator has made full and complete transfer of the absentee’s assets as directed, the court may approve the returns and discharge the conservator. If objections to the returns are filed, the circuit judge shall conduct a hearing under the same conditions for a hearing on objections to annual returns.
Such discharge shall operate as a release from the duties of the conservatorship and as a bar to any suit against said conservator or her or his surety, unless such suit is commenced within 1 year from the date of discharge.
