Q: I was my moms conservator until she passed 2 months ago. My attorney was ordered to return 12k in 60 days. 5 months ago.
The 12k was money he spent, but did not earn. He tells me that he doesnt have to pay it back, because my mom died. Does her death allow him to keep money he did not earn?
A: No. The money belongs to her estate.

You need to get back to court to inform the judge of the status of the conservatorship. Send me an email if you want to discuss.
