Co-guardianship -- and DPOA? Me and a sibling are listed for medical with regard to my mother's dpoa, the other sections list me -- some siblings don't agree with this arrangement and have threatened to contest it in court -- how long/expensive of a procedure is that ?? they want to waste all this energy and money and in the end, nobody wins.....
anyway, they have threatened to apply for guardianship of both my mother & father, what kind of procedure is this and what if all siblings are not in agreement? some of my siblings are meeting with an elder law attorney, a last minute meeting that i cannot attend in person, (maybe conferenced in), is co-guardianship a good option?? guessing this means only 2 people, right??

Jinx I'd be afraid that that would be a fairly forlorn hope - Ker-chingggggg…!

There must be some sort of "Complete Idiot's Guide to DPOA etc." for you to put under your siblings' noses? I'd start with wikipedia.

Hopefully the lawyer will talk sense into them.

First the court will appoint a temporary guardian who is independent. The person wanting guardianship will be background checked. The other siblings will be asked to sign off in agreement. If there is a squabble, the judge will not appoint ANY of you, but pick an independent guardian. So either you come to agreement as a group, or NONE of you get control.
