Under existing law, if no fit person applies or qualifies to serve as a guardian or conservator of the estate of a protected person, the sheriff must be appointed to act as conservator or guardian of that person
This bill would amend provisions providing that the sheriff, or any employee of the sheriff's office, be appointed as a general guardian or conservator of the estate of a protected person and would repeal existing law that requires a sheriff to be so appointed
Relating to sheriffs; to amend Sections 26-2-50 and 26-2A-138, Code of Alabama 1975, to prevent certain persons from being appointed as guardians or conservators; and to repeal Section 26-2-27, Code of Alabama 1975.
