New Minnesota Conservatorship Account Filing Requirements (CAMPER)

Minnesota Courts have implemented a new online filing system for annual (and final) accounts for conservatorships.  Check with your local court to see if they are requiring it yet.  Apparently it is mandatory statewide by January 1, 2011.  Here is a link to the Court’s website regarding the training that needs to be completed to use the online system, which is called CAMPER (Conservator Account Monitoring and Preparation and Electronic Reporting):    CAMPER link

While I typically favor automating things, because I think it makes life easier in the long run, I have very mixed feelings about this new requirement.  The majority of my conservator clients are individual family members, many of whom aren’t technologically sophisticated.  While many of them use our firm’s services for preparation of an annual account, many of them also do the account on their own (and I have witnessed many pro se conservators in court who do the filing on their own – “the old fashioned way”, with pen and paper).  I fear that this new electronic filing requirement will force them to hire attorneys or other professionals to do the filing and that will increase fees (and decrease funds available to the protected person).  Time will tell.
