In Minnesota, my mother was given an emergency guardianship/conservatorship by the court. The original petition reads that she would be placed in assisted living if the petition is granted. However, the judge said at the hearing that was up to the appointed guardian. The court order does not reference being moved to assisted living. Is the judge's ruling correct? Is this common in Minnesota?
