Section 26-2A-158

Termination of proceedings.

(a) The protected person, conservator, or any other interested person may petition the court to terminate the conservatorship. A protected person seeking termination is entitled to the same rights and procedures as in an original proceeding for a protective order. If the conservator has accounted to the formerly protected person, no accounting is necessary. The court, upon determining after notice and hearing that the minority or disability of the protected person has ceased, shall terminate the conservatorship. Upon termination, title to assets of the estate passes to the formerly protected person or to successors. The order of termination must provide for expenses of administration and direct the conservator to execute appropriate instruments to evidence the transfer.

(b) A conservator appointed by any court of this state, on termination or removal of the protected person's minority or disability, may present a verified petition to the court in which the conservatorship is pending, praying for a final consent settlement by and between the conservator and the protected person. If the consent settlement is agreed to by the protected person in a written instrument signed by the protected person and acknowledged as conveyances of real estate are acknowledged, the court may approve the settlement without notice. The agreement of the protected person may be expressed by joining in the petition with the conservator or by a separate written instrument. Any final settlement so approved by the court shall have the same force and effect as settlements made in compliance with subsection (a).
