Emergency order for adult protective services; temporary conservator. Requires courts issuing an emergency order for adult protective services to (i) appoint, when applicable, a temporary conservator with responsibility and authority limited to managing the adult's estate and financial affairs related to the approved adult protective services until the expiration of the order and (ii) set the bond of the temporary guardian and the bond and surety, if any, of the temporary conservator. The bill allows the temporary conservator to petition the court to have the emergency order set aside or modified upon a substantial change in circumstances and requires the temporary conservator to submit to the court a report describing any services provided to the adult. This bill is identical to SB 543. Amends § 63.2-1609, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
