Anonymous:  My son is turning 18, I have applied for conservatorship, there will be an overlap period.
I have an unsigned IEP, I believe that school personnel will prey on my son to sign. I was told that once he is 18, “things can get messy”

Something to consider– Your son can include you in IEP meetings as someone who has special knowledge of him even if you don’t have guardianship or a power of attorney. Is he willingly agreeing to the conservatorship or is he at a functional level in which he can’t consent and you have to convince a judge? Would your son sign something (IEP) without verifying with you it’s something in his best interest?

You can look into him signing a power of attorney giving you authority to make educational decisions for him.
