Guradianships can be voided if the person becomes competent due to recovering from an illness or injury (just happened for one of my patients) or if they were obtained under false pretenses and the person was never actually incompetent. A specific guardian can be removed for failing to act in the best interest of the ward. If a nursing home got guardianship because no one else was stepping up, it would seem like a family member who did not know about it and should have been notified first could be considered. Nursing homes usually just try to get representative payee though. As CarolLynn mentions above, if you are comfortable providing more details, we might be of more help!

Conservatorships/Guardianships are a legal/court process to obtain. Procedure generally requires notification of related family members or their lawyers as well as any court appointed evaluators. As such, you should have been notified and allowed to participate in the proceedings. Have YOU been to court?

When you say "break" a guardianship, the implication is that it's already granted. However, when you say "initiated", it seems as if the process could still be in play. Which is it?

I checked back and saw a post from you in 2012 where another member questioned you about having a POA, but I wasn't able to find if you answered that question, did you?

Is this for the same elder person, or situation just one year later?

The obvious answer at this moment is that you need to see an attorney but if you want more information from the members here, please give more details regarding what is this is your grandmother or your mom, has there been placement in a nursing home (b/c you say on your profile page that you were taking care of someone at home), age(s) of those involved, etc.

Thanks, hope we can help...
