Our Elmhurst guardianship litigation attorneys explain what takes place when a guardianship is contested in Illinois when a guardianship is not working out or is no longer needed. When taking a look at minors in specific, the biological parents of the minor who is under guardianship may petition to terminate the guardianship. Once the petition has been filed, a date for a court hearing will be set. The parents of the minor must prepare sufficient evidence in support of their claim before the court hearing. They must gather evidence that proves they are fully capable of caring for their child and that there has been a material change in circumstances since entry of the guardianship. Upon hearing each party’s evidence, the court will decide whether to terminate the guardianship, modify the appointment in any way, or leave the guardianship appointment as is.
