• Guardianships & Related LitigationTermination of Guardianship

    There are several circumstances which can lead to the termination of a Guardianship.


    In the event that a Ward regains his or her ability to exercise some or all of their rights which were previously removed at the initiation of the Guardianship and the same is confirmed through a current medical examination, the Court may restore all or some of such rights going forward.

    If full capacity is restored, the Guardianship is terminated, and the Guardian is discharged. The Ward’s death also terminates the Guardianship.

    Assets of the Guardianship will, upon the Ward’s death, be added to the Ward’s Probate Estate and will pass under the Ward’s Last Will and Testament or by Intestacy if no valid Will exists.
