Contact our guardianship law firm to discuss your guardianship concerns.

REMOVAL CAN HAPPEN UNDER MANY CIRCUMSTANCES

It is important to understand that the court has broad discretion to remove a guardian over an elderly individual or a special needs person at any time. Common causes for removal include:

  • Abuse, neglect or exploitation of the ward
  • Failure to educate the ward
  • Misapplication, embezzlement or removal of the ward's property
  • Failure to be available for service
  • Removal from the ward's state for 30 days or longer without court approval
  • Failure to follow a court order regarding specific duties

You must understand your role and responsibilities to the ward and the ward's personal property and finances. One misstep can lead to court intervention and potential removal.

If you have any questions about your duties, it is always better to reach out to a knowledgeable lawyer to help you understand what is expected of you. Do not wait for a removal notice to begin paying attention to your responsibilities.

HELPING YOU SEEK REINSTATEMENT AFTER REMOVAL

You have the right to contest an order of removal. However, you have limited time in which to make this request. If you file your request in a timely manner, you will be granted another hearing to prove that you did not commit the action that caused your removal. We will prepare an argument for you and represent you at this hearing.
