NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Actress Reese Witherspoon hopes to gain control of her father's legal decisions today.

Witherspoon wants to gain conservatorship over longtime Nashville physician John Witherspoon.

Family members say they are concerned about his mental competency.

Witherspoon married a new wife in January, despite Reese's mother saying she was still married to John.

A bigamy suit against Dr. Witherspoon and Tricianna Taylor has since been dropped.

A judge Monday ruled to keep records of the court proceeding sealed.
