Florida Probate & Trust Litigation Blog : Florida needs to adopt the Uniform Adult Guardianship and Protective Proceedings Jurisdiction Act (January 27, 2022)

Juan C. Antunez in his Florida Probate & Trust Litigation Blog discusses why Florida should adopt the Uniform Adult Guardianship and Protective Proceedings Jurisdiction Act. The article begins as follows:

In our increasingly mobile society, adult guardianships often involve more than one state, raising complex multi-jurisdictional issues.

We have legal theories for resolving these civil procedure puzzles on a case-by-case basis (as demonstrated in the Morrison case), but the best long-term solution is adoption of the Uniform Adult Guardianship and Protective Proceedings Jurisdiction Act (UAGPPJA), which has pretty much been endorsed by just about every organization that might possibly have an interest in the issue, including the ABA Commission on Law and Aging, the AARP, the  National College of Probate Judges, the National Guardianship Foundation, the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, and the Alzheimer’s Association.
