Robert Harper: The Resolution of Interstate Adult Guardianship Disputes in New York (March 29, 2021)

Robert Harper, of New York Trusts & Estates Litigation Blog, has published his summary of the Uniform Adult Guardianship and Protective Proceedings Jurisdiction Act (“UAGPPJA”) in his article titled “The Resolution of Interstate Adult Guardianship Disputes in New York.” The summary is as follows:

The Uniform Adult Guardianship and Protective Proceedings Jurisdiction Act (“UAGPPJA”) is intended to “resolve jurisdiction issues in guardianship proceedings when two states have connections with the individual over whom guardianship is sought” (see Matter of J.D.S., 70 Misc3d 556, 558 [Sur Ct, New York County 2020]).  UAGPPJA does so by “providing a more streamlined and predictable process, saving state funds and conserving judicial resources, and reducing the possibility for abuse and expense of the alleged incapacitated person and that person’s family and caretakers” (see id.Schwaber & Kafer, P.C. v Alpizar, Index No. 157599/2020, 2021 WL 408231, at *2 [Sup Ct, New York County Feb. 5, 2021]).
