Interdiction and Incapacitation Orders

Interdiction and incapacitation orders can be converted to Guardianship orders.

This can be done by submitting a request to the court of Voluntary Jurisdiction. The Court may consult with the Guardianship board as necessary or refer the matter to the Board for its determination.

 

If there are insufficient grounds for the conversion to be made, the court of Voluntary Jurisdiction is notified and the interdiction or incapacitation remains in force.

 

If there are sufficient grounds for the conversion to be made, a guardianship order is issued and the court of Voluntary Jurisdiction is notified. The court of Voluntary Jurisdiction revokes the interdiction or incapacitation.

 

It is advisable to seek the assistance of a lawyer if you would like to submit a request for a conversion to the court of Voluntary Jurisdiction.
