Does a conservator get paid?

Normally, you or another family member who acts as your family member's conservator would not be paid for performing those duties, although expenses are reimbursed out of her funds. A professional conservator would be paid, and it's up to the judge to decide how much.

In some circumstances, the job of being conservator is very time-consuming and seriously restricts other work the conservator could do. In that case, a special request to the judge can be made for payment to a family member who's acting as conservator.
