Video: What if another person filed for guardianship over a loved one and I disagree with having that person appointed?

If another person has filed a guardianship over a loved one and you disagree with having that person appointed, then you need to retain counsel to oppose that person's appointment. In most cases, if a petition to appoint guardian goes unopposed, that person who's applying to be guardian will become the guardian. If you cannot afford counsel, then you can contact the court-appointed attorney and raise your objections. You can write a letter to the judge, or if you have standing in some cases you can attend the hearing and oppose in person.
