Loogootee, IN, June 02, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- HB2505 provides that a temporary guardian of a disabled adult shall have limited powers and duties (instead of “all the powers and duties”) of a guardian of the person or estate which are enumerated by court order.
In other words, a temporary guardian no longer will automatically have full autonomy over an elderly or disabled person. Limiting the powers or reach of a temporary guardian is a common sense, practical change in the laws which significantly protects the person and the person’s estate.
NASGA continues to applaud Representative Harris and Senator Stadelman’s commitment.
NASGA looks forward to more collaboration from these esteemed lawmakers from different political parties with the same goal: to protect the elderly and disabled citizens of the State of Illinois from guardianship abuse.
