(a) At any time upon petition signed by the absentee, or on petition of an attorney in fact acting under an adequate power of attorney granted by the absentee, the court shall direct the termination of the conservatorship and the transfer of all property held under the conservatorship to the absentee or to the designated attorney in fact.

(b) Likewise, if at any time subsequent to the appointment of a conservator it appears that the absentee has died and a personal representative has been appointed for the absentee's estate, the court shall direct the termination of the conservatorship and the transfer of all property of the deceased absentee held under the conservatorship to the personal representative.

(c) When the need for a conservatorship terminates, the conservator shall promptly file final accountings and application for discharge with the court.  If it appears to the court that the accountings are correct and that the conservator has made full and complete transfer of the absentee's assets as directed, the court may approve the accountings and discharge the conservator.  If objections to the accountings are filed, the judge shall conduct a hearing under the same conditions for a hearing on objections to annual accountings.

(d) The discharge shall operate as a release from the duties of the conservatorship and as a bar to any suit against the conservator or the conservator's surety, unless the suit is commenced within one (1) year from the date of discharge.
