Tinley Park Adult Guardianship Hearings Explained

In this post, our Tinley Park contested guardianship attorneys explain In the case of adult wards challenging a guardianship order, the ward may choose to challenge due to a change in his or her capabilities of caring for and making sound decisions for himself or herself. The ward therefore must argue that he or she should no longer be considered legally "disabled" to the extent that a guardianship is necessary. Regardless of his or her disability, however, a ward always has the right to request the termination or modification of the guardianship order. The ward or a person on behalf of the ward, or even an attorney, may file a petition with the court to terminate the guardianship.


Generally, these findings can either result in a dismissal of the petition and keeping the guardianship as is, termination of the disability adjudication and termination of the guardianship, modifying the responsibilities of the guardian, or making any other order the court deems to be in the best interest of the ward.

In this episode of Learn About Law, our Tinley Park contested guardianship attorney discusses what happens at Illinois adult guardianship hearings.
