Can the conservator act for the conserved parent in making parenting decisions or shouldn't the other parent temporarily or permanently be given legal authority? In other words, can the conservator assert him or herself in a way that overrides the parent with whom the children live just because they are authorized to make health decisions for the conserved non-custodial parent?

I was wondering if was appointed special conservator for my disabled son and the lawyer I hadon't was not helpful at all. My son has a settlement check that needs deposited in a restricted account but if I do he will loose his social security and the lawyer told me it wouldn't effect it but when I called social security they said it would. I don't want my son to loose this he depends on it to live. All I want is his lawyer to withdraw from the case for that's what the court told me for him to do so I can proceed with permanent guardianship and conservatorship. What can I do?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: ColoradoJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: ThE case has been filed I just received the check but don't want to deposit it till I'm sure my son's social security is secure. His lawyer says he's ethically obligated to stay on till it It's deposited but won't help with anything to make sure his ss is safeJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: That I have 30 days to deposit this and want to file the Guardian and conservatorship asap but his lawyer is holding me back even though the case is closed
