I was recently served with petitions for temporary and permanent conservator for my mother. Does a brief need to be filed prior to the first hearing? If so, how many days in advance? Does everyone served need to get a copy before the hearing? The petitions says my mother doesn't want be there and can't, but I doubt she understand what a conservatorship means. What's the most important point to object on? She's mentally competent.
I wouldn't call it a brief but you will have to file a written objection stating your factual reasons; if you don't file it before the hearing, you need to go to the hearing and object which will then cause the hearing to be continued to permit time for you to file.
