Frequently Asked Questions About Guardianships
We understand that you may have questions about guardianships and the process involved. Here are some frequently asked questions and their answers to help you better understand the importance of guardianships:
Q: What is the difference between a guardianship and a power of attorney? A: A guardianship is a court-appointed legal arrangement in which a guardian is appointed to make decisions on behalf of an incapacitated individual. In contrast, a power of attorney is a legal document in which an individual (the principal) voluntarily grants another person (the agent) the authority to make decisions on their behalf. A power of attorney can be established without court intervention and can be limited or revoked by the principal, whereas a guardianship requires court approval and oversight
Q: Who can serve as a guardian? A: A guardian can be a family member, friend, or professional who has the necessary qualifications and abilities to care for the incapacitated person. The court will consider the best interests of the incapacitated individual when appointing a guardian, taking into account factors such as the proposed guardian's relationship with the person, their ability to perform the required duties, and any potential conflicts of interest.
Q: How can I terminate or modify a guardianship? A: If you believe that a guardianship is no longer necessary, or if you wish to modify the terms of the guardianship, you can petition the court for termination or modification. You will need to provide evidence that the incapacitated individual's circumstances have changed or that the guardian is not acting in their best interests. Our Philadelphia guardianship attorneys can assist you in preparing and filing the necessary petition and representing you in any subsequent court proceedings.
