Practical Pointers from Practitioners: Extensive Changes Made to Missouri’s Guardianship and Conservatorship Statutes

On June 1, 2018, Missouri’s then-Governor Eric Greitens signed 77 bills into law before officially resigning later that day. One of those bills, Senate Bill 806, included massive changes to Missouri’s outdated guardianship and conservatorship statutes, which were enacted in 1983. Missouri Senate Bill 806 amends Mo. Rev.
