Terms Used In Alabama Code > Title 2 > Chapter 1

  • conservator: A person who is appointed by a court to manage the estate of a protected person and includes a limited conservator described in Section 26-2A-148(a). See Alabama Code 26-2A-20
  • cooperative: A cooperative marketing association for marketing of farm products. See Alabama Code 2-1-1
  • court: A probate court of this state. See Alabama Code 26-2A-20
  • COURT REPRESENTATIVE: A person appointed in a guardianship or protective proceeding who is trained in law, nursing, or social work, is an officer, employee, or special appointee of the court, and has no personal interest in the proceeding. See Alabama Code 26-2A-20
  • Decedent: A deceased person.
  • Devise: To gift property by will.
  • disability: Cause for a protective order as described in Section 26-2A-130. See Alabama Code 26-2A-20
  • Entitlement: A Federal program or provision of law that requires payments to any person or unit of government that meets the eligibility criteria established by law. Entitlements constitute a binding obligation on the part of the Federal Government, and eligible recipients have legal recourse if the obligation is not fulfilled. Social Security and veterans' compensation and pensions are examples of entitlement programs.
  • Equitable: Pertaining to civil suits in "equity" rather than in "law." In English legal history, the courts of "law" could order the payment of damages and could afford no other remedy. See damages. A separate court of "equity" could order someone to do something or to cease to do something. See, e.g., injunction. In American jurisprudence, the federal courts have both legal and equitable power, but the distinction is still an important one. For example, a trial by jury is normally available in "law" cases but not in "equity" cases. Source: U.S. Courts
