If a person suffering from a psychiatric disorder is refusing to take their medication you move for an involuntary commitment if she is a danger to herself or others. http://www.treatmentadvocacycenter.org/illinois

Are you looking for information on how this process works?

I understand the stress. I have handled commitments for the State and this is one of the most stressful and difficult areas of law. Which county are you located in? Are you with me? Are you going to respond to my question?

Do you still need assistance or do you want a refund?

New Expert here.

Have you spoken with her psychiatrist? I know from personal experience that it can take years to find a medication or combination of medications that will alleviate the mood swings. Filing for a conservatorship is pretty much guaranteed to anger her. A competent adult has the right to refuse medical treatment, and just the diagnosis of bipolar disorder does not necessarily mean she is incompetent.

Has she told you why she will not take her current medications? Do you know which one(s) she is supposed to be taking?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
