Michael Lohan Makes Move for Conservatorship

9/29/2010 8:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Lohan will ask a judge to establish a conservatorship for Lindsay Lohan ... TMZ has learned.

0910_media_removed_Spencer_Pratt
Michael met with attorney David Chon (left) today and will hire him to file conservatorship papers ... Chon specializes in trusts and estates.

We're told Michael has enough sense to know the judge isn't going to make him the conservator, so he has two other people in mind ... though he's not saying who.

Michael is saying, he doesn't want Dina Lohan or Lindsay's business manager, Lou Taylor, to handle Lindsay's affairs because "they're in it for themselves."

Our sources say Michael plans on filing a petition for conservatorship "within days."

I had to find out what he does for $$$. Unbelievable.
While in prison he took a correspondence course to become a minister. (Can you think of a better job for a con man?) So now he is a "certified minister" (not ordained, they go to seminaries. He works in Long Island ministering to youth in a long term rehab center. That correspondence course must have been missing a few lessons.

Michael Lohan is a deluded comedian! Lindsay has a drug problen, she is NOT mentally incapable. But I suppose a wife beating, embezzler, abuser, alcoholic, drug taking, money grabbong dirtbag has to make some money someway, right?

This guy sold Lindsay down the river a long time ago. When he was in prison he filed for half of Lindsays earnings, he said he was her manager. That was thrown out. He has sold tapes of his distraught daughter to the highest bidder. He tried to sell pages of her diary to a media outlet, THEY blew the whistle on him. That is why Lindsays lawyer issued a cease and desist letter. He constantly talks about his daughter to the media, he is paid for his interviews, THAT is where he obtains his money.

Why has he moved to LA? what about his other children? If Dina is such a bad person, why was she granted custody of the children? (and I'm not a Dina fan) Lindsay has supported this family her entire life, thats why this reptile known as Michael Lohan wants control over Lindsay. Any money in this family comes from her. This guy makes me feel physically sick at what he is trying to do.

Did *anyone* read past the title of this article??
Michael knows that *he* would never be allowed, so he is petitioning the court to have the guy in the pic with him appointed.
But...he specifically does not want Dina or LiLo's publicist to be appointed either, as he knows that Din would continue has she has been (using LL as her little atm....$$) and thinks that Taylor would be in it for the $$$$ as well

1. A conservatorship is put in place when a person is unable to manage their BASIC NEEDS and/or their finances. Lindsay probably does not fit within those categories. A conservatorship might oversee either one of these issues or both if deemed necessary.

2. When asked whether they would attempt to seek a conservatorship both Dina and Lou Taylor separately issued statements that were in essence no comment--not denials. Thus, this appears to be a preemptive move by Michael Lohan.

3. A 5150 hold is for 72 hours only and is granted only if the party is deemed to be a danger to themselves or others. After that the parties must go to court to impose additional time in a mental hospital. This is a different standard than unable to care for basic needs.

4. Shawn Chapman Holley is a criminal specialist and would likely not represent Lindsay in this matter. In fact, the proposed conservatee would have separate counsel from those seeking the conservatorship so that their interests are protected.

5. Britney Spears' mother was a complete stage mom although not as bad as Dina Lohan. Jamie Spears was uninvolved in that aspect of her life.

6. Britney has two conservators one of which is an attorney and, if memory serves, was court appointed.

7. This is a separate matter from Lindsay's criminal case and thus it would be unlikely that Judge Fox would preside over this case as well.

Lindsay is a perfect candidate for a conservatorship. She has CLEARLY shown she is incompetant and incapable of taking care of herself, much less her financial affairs. When she was first going to court with this latest issue, she was served papers going up the elevator that she owed something like $17,000 to a local shop. She can't pay her bills on her own, her family has been sponging off of her, she's a drug addict and definately "not of sound mind' as she so adamantly declared the other day.


It's a shame that the only one in her family that cares enough to be honest is this man. And it also shows what stellar parenting she's had coming from both sides. Dina = famewhoring pimp (continuing the tradition with Ali) - Dad = felon, famewhore, etc.

Sad situation for this once talented actress. I sure hope she can pull her crud together.

By some of the comments appears people do not understand that he is not asking to be appointed Conservator, he's just petitioning that Lindsay be placed under a conservatorship and someone other than daddy or mama Lohan be appointed. He has not been father of the year, but he is right this time. He's hoping to keep enablers away from Lindsay as was done for Britney. Dina has been no help, in fact enabled Lindsay to go in a downward tailspin.

I think I've heard everything now. Lindsay is mentally incapable because she didn't pay her bill to a shop when it was due. Yeah, thats right, put that on the 5150 list, "didn't pay bills on time" LMAO!!!! On that reasoning Michael Lohan should be under conservatorship, he didn't pay child support for 13 MONTHS!!!!

What is not being acknowledged is that Lindsay does not meet the criteria for a conservatorship to be issued, no matter who applies for it. I said before and here I go again, Lindsay has a drug problem, she is NOT mentally incapable. Should everyone with a drug problem in Hollywood have a conservatorship issued against them? If so, turn out the lights on Hollywood when you leave.

Michael Lohan thinks Dina and Lindsays manager Lou Taylor will take this action, thats why he is 'getting in first' Believe me, Michael Lohan would try every backhanded trick in the book to get at Lindsays estate, even if is under the guise of appointing someone else. This is NOT going to happen. If all of these leeches wanted to seek a conservatorship, it would be denied.

@ 110 It doesn't matter, Anyone brought forward by him would be unacceptable to both Lindsay and her entire entourage . He knows that so why does he do this then? He also knows that him filing this motion will most probably have the opposite effect of what he says he wants . He's only made it more difficult for the judge to appoint a conservator ( if that's even possible, opinions vary ) .So that in itself puts his motivation in doubt.

The judge will also want to know- from the folks treating LL, and this time for more than a few days like UCLA did - what exactly is going on here. Chance is reasonably high Lindsay isn't addicted to alcohol or cocaine - from a legal standpoint - but IS addicted ( or dependent ) to prescription drugs . That would also influence judge's decision on what should happen next. The hearing on October 22nd should be very interesting ( because it would indicate how court deals with an addiction like this ) and of vital importance to Lindsay herself.

@ Post 112. If what you say is true, that Lindsay may be addicted/dependent on prescription drugs only, she needs to carry on with her treatment. How many people in the US are on prescription drugs? and probably a fair number are addicted. I can't predict what the Judge will do but he's there to issue a sentence for probation violation. He will probably sentence her to the mandatory 30 days jail though how much of that she will serve (if anything) we don't know. The fact Lindsay checked herself into rehab when she could have remained free until the court date indicates she is serious about getting better. The Judge cannot increase the sentence, she has not violated the new court orders.

I'm sure the people he has in mind will somehow benefit him.

About friggin' time. That's how Britney Spear's family saved her life. No...doubt the judge will appoint him as he's been as bad as everyone else in her life, so the only chance will be the back ups.

If I were the Judge I would throw his ass out of the court room and issue an Order of Protection for Lindsay so her joke of a father stays away from her. Michael Lohan is nothing but a bottom feeder.
