Section 26-5-16

Compensation of conservator - Commissions generally; allowances for actual expenses and for special or extraordinary services rendered; premiums on bond.

A conservator is entitled for his or her services to reasonable compensation.

On final settlement, an allowance must be made of actual expenses necessarily incurred by him or her and, for special or extraordinary services rendered, such compensation must be allowed the conservator as is just, but no allowance of actual expenses or for special or extraordinary services must be made except upon an itemized account, verified by affidavit, of such expenses or of such special or extraordinary services, and in its decree the court must state each item for such services for which compensation is allowed. The conservator shall be allowed all reasonable premiums paid on his or her bond as conservator.
