Guardianship

Contact our lawyers at Meikle Osgood in Edmonton, AB, to discuss matters related to Guardianship.

An individual is a Dependent Adult when the Court is satisfied that a person named in an application for an Order appointing a guardian is repeatedly or continuously unable to take care of himself or herself and make reasonable judgements in respect of matters relating to his or her person and there is no Personal Directive in effect. Under the old Act, the appointment of a Trustee and Guardian had to be reviewed by the Court every 6 years and the passing of accounts of a Trustee as often as the Court may order - usually 2 years. These deadlines are now up to the Surrogate Judge to implement, relying upon the information supplied in the application. Contact our office to obtain the Capacity Assessment Form required as part of an application.
