Guardianship and Administration Matters

The State Administrative Tribunal can make a Guardianship order in respect of a person of 18 years of age or more who is:

  • incapable of looking after his or her own health and safety;
  • unable to make reasonable judgments in respect of matters relating to his or her own person;
  • in need of oversight, care or control in the interests of his or her health and safety or for the protection of others, and
  • in need of a guardian.

There is no requirement that the person's incapacity has resulted from any disability.

Cullen Macleod can prepare the necessary applications for guardianship orders and represent you at the hearing.
