Filing for Guardianship of a Disabled Adult in Iowa

If an adult is incapable of making decision on their own due to a disability, a guardian is appointed to them. This guardian is responsible for any legal decision that need to be made on the disabled individuals behalf, and the guardian is responsible for making these decisions with the individuals best interest in mind. If for whatever reason, a guardianship needs to be modified or removed, a litigation case would need to occur.

In this article, our Iowa guardianship litigation attorneys explain circumstances that can lead to a guardianship ligation and the steps needed in order to remove or modify the responsibilities of the current guardian.

In this video, our Iowa guardianship litigation attorneys discuss how to file for guardianship of a disabled adult in Iowa.

  • Who can adopt a child in Iowa?
  • What are the different types of adoption in Iowa?
  • How long does adoption take in Iowa?
  • How much does adoption cost in Iowa?
  • What information is available for adoptive parents in Iowa?
  • Do all adoptions require a home study in Iowa?
  • What kind of training is required for adoptive parents in Iowa?

Removing an Iowa Guardian

A guardian is responsible for the care of another individual, but there are many reasons that a guardianship may need to be removed or modified. Our Iowa guardianship litigation attorneys explain the process of removing or modifying a guardianship. Possible reasons that a guardianship would need to be removed or modified would be the following:

  • Becoming physically or mentally unable to handle the duties assigned as guardian;
  • Neglect or deprivation of the ward by the guardian;
  • Failing to file an inventory or accounting after being ordered to do so by the court;
  • Mismanagement of the estate;
  • Malfeasance;
  • A better match as guardian is apparent;
  • Conviction of a felony;
  • Endangering a co-guardian or bond surety for the guardian through his or her behavior;
  • Any other good reason as determined by the court
