We are often hired for representation in regard to guardianship cases. Sometimes we are filing for guardianship for a client. At other times we are contesting for a client a guardianship case that has already been filed. In some situations, client alleges conflicts or potential conflicts of interest. There are often disputes between the appropriateness of acting pursuant to a Power of Attorney or seeking an Order from the Court establishing a guardianship and appointing a guardian. There has to be an investigation as to the appropriateness of any guardianship proceeding and/or Orders entered by the Court. Sometimes it is appropriate to petition the Court to set aside, amend or modify Orders that have been entered in a guardianship proceeding for various reasons. Sometimes circumstances change. In other instances new information is obtained. In some cases, there are changes in the position of the parties or the facts and circumstances relating to the guardianship, the ward and/or any guardians that may have been appointed.
