Removal Of An Unfit Guardian Through Litigation

Guardianship matters tend to be charged with emotion. If you believe the person charged with caring for your loved one is unfit or not performing his or her duties properly, you may wish to take action to have a state-appointed guardian or another family member removed from the responsibility.

Some reasons for pursuing litigation to have a guardian removed may include:

  • The behavior or conduct of the guardian compromises the interests of the ward — such instances may include elder financial abuse or other breaches of fiduciary duty
  • You believe that someone else would be better suited to act as the guardian
  • You believe that the ward does not require guardianship
