Colorado Conservatorship & Guardianship: Is There an Expedited Proceeding for Appointment in the Event of an Emergency? 

Colorado Springs lawyerYes, certain notices can be waived if an emergency exists, and courts will try to fit emergency hearings on their existing dockets. 

The court may appoint a guardian on an emergency basis if it finds that harm to a person’s health, safety, or welfare will result without an emergency guardian being appointed. 

The emergency guardianship cannot exceed 60 days. Therefore, a more standard guardianship petition and hearing must be subsequently held no later than 60 days after the appointment of emergency guardianship. Otherwise, the guardian’s authority automatically expires.
