TMZ was able to verify via court records that Hank did file a petition for an emergency conservatorship in August of 2020 for Sam. However, they were unable to determine the current status of the conservatorship.
Sam’s sister Katie passed away in a tragic car accident in July of 2020.
Generally speaking, a conservatorship is granted by a judge when a responsible person or organization (the conservator) is appointed to care for another adult (the conservatee) who cannot adequality care for themselves or manage their own finances. Often times, the conservatee may suffer dementia or other mental illnesses.
In November of 2021, Sam shared an Instagram post congratulating his dad on induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame, and he also attended the ceremony with him.
