Lindsay Lohan's Dad Going for Conservatorship

5/2/2010 9:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Michael Lohan will be back in L.A. Monday ... and he's telling people he'll start the legal ball rolling to create a conservatorship for Lindsay Lohan.

Lindsay is in NYC but refuses to see MIchael ... and daddy Lohan says it's now time. 

As for a possible conservatorship, Lohan is telling people he'd gladly serve as the conservator but is open to someone else assuming that role.

Michael Lohan also says he does not want his daughter to go to jail. As TMZ first reported, Lohan is on the fast track for a jail cell because she has squarely violated the terms of her probation.  A court day of May 20 looms for Lindsay.

Michael wants Lindsay in rehab but not a traditional, group facility.  He wants to go the Brooke Mueller route -- a private home with lots of doctors.  What Michael isn't factoring in -- that type of rehab is bocu expensive and Lindsay is broke.

i agree on the conservatorship and he is at least honest enough to know that he should not be the one to be in charge of it. lindsey lohan is going to jail and her mother is a terrible enabler to boot.. both parents suck at being parents but at least micheal lohan is now trying to put some sort of break on this girls behaviour whereas her mother just endorses it.. what a family of dysfunction!.

Good luck to you, Michael. I stand squarely behind you. If I were you, I'd opt for a third party to be the conservator. It will protect you from those who simply don't get it that you are saving your daughter's life here. Less grief in a long run.

I've given a great deal of thought as to why Dina Lohan is denying Lindsay's obvious problem here. I believe she has her own drug problem and when we see them together, it's two addicts supporting each other.

It's all just a big publicity stunt on all levels...why are Samantha Ronson and Lindsay Lohan still their number one friends on myspace?

This is sad and serious but what is sort of ironic is that I'd bet most of the posters forthcoming will allege Michael is after her money. SHE HAS NONE LEFT lol. There is nothing to get for anyone. That said, this man is clearly trying to save his daughter. And it's not going to be fun or easy for him either. Sad deal for all. I wish she would just get a grip and do this.

Lindsay does need a Conservator and I agree with the Polls that Michael should NOT be the one for the job.

I looked at the court papers that TMZ had when the article about her being in violation of her probation was on here last week. She was convicted of several charges. This judge gave her a lot of breaks and now has to deal with her continued violation of the probation terms.
This judge could go "judge Sauer" on her and put her in prison, not jail.
I think it is too late for the conservatorship; there is not enough time to get it in place before her court date. The way things are in the over crowded jail in LA the longest time she could get in jail would be 37 days. A one year sentence would be 180 days after time off for good behavior and since non violent jail prisoners usually do 10 percent of the original sentence 37 days would be the actual time if she was sentenced to a year in jail. The 37 days might not be enough to satisify the judge.
We might see her sent to the big house.

Lindsay should tell her dad to buzz off and then she should
do a few lines for good measure.

this is silly , there is no legal grounds for conservationship period , a lot of people get messed up ,
a lot drug addicts are not given conservsationship because they mess up their life , look at all the people on the streets . michael lohan could get arrested for abuse of the legal system, stalking , and breaking and entering , this threat of conservationship is ridiculous. threat of conservsationship is ridiculous . the judge may not take too kindly on his criminal behavior . he is threatening to ask for conservationship as a way to have a relationship with his daughter , seen video from millions of milkshakes and her going to the airport , i doubt she meets the legal qualifications . it takes a lot for the court to grant someone conservationship and strip someone of their in essence , their constitution rights. you do not like her tyler shields photos , too bad . different taste . being in debt is not grounds for conservationship , lots of people own a lot of money on their credit card , this is just high drama. michael lohan could be arrested when he returns to california . no one got conservationship over mackenzie phillips or whitney houston , not even michael jackson , and he was in debt to close to 600 million . after britney . the conservationship thing has become a new fad , abuse of the legal system.

Lindsay Lohan definitely needs help. She's a drug addict. She's a cuter. She's a stalker. She's a hoarder. And she stays up all night at the clubs. The girl has problems and somebody needs to help her before it's too late.

Lindsay just needs to be left alone. If anyone in that mess needs a conservatorship, it's Michal himself and his ex Dina. Get real.Lindsay is a talented young lady raising a lot of hell. If that' too much for some people, tough ****.

Get real, there are no grounds for Michael Lohan or anyone else to seek a conservatoryship. Just because some of you don't like her is no reason to wish her harm.



TMZ have made Lindsay Lohan their hate target and the majority of their stories are from 'sources' which should be ignored. Who said 'never trust a blog or website who quotes sources'



I'll tell you one thing, this bullying of Lindsay Lohan by TMZ is the worst I have ever seen.

What planet are you living on? Any "talent" Lindsay may have had has long since been forgotten in the entertainment industry. She's a drug addicted thief who seems to be trying her best to get her under age sister down the same path. And too bad Dina can't be charged with something for the way she has enabled this "child". They are both totally disgusting. Jail time might be the best thing in the world for Lindsay, because she clearly isn't going to do anything positive anyway.
