The Idaho Guardian and Fiduciary Association is a resource to assist and support families, volunteers, and professionals who serve incapacitated and protected persons as: petitioning attorneys, guardians ad litem, court visitors, guardians of the person, and conservators of the estate.
We try our best to help and be of assistance, however, we do not engage in disciplinary action so please do not call or email the IGFA business office seeking legal advice concerning a specific case.
Guardianship laws vary from state to state. They can also vary in your local area where the law and local court rules may vary from county to county, or from state to state. When you need help, it is a good idea to make inquires as to what is appropriate for your specific circumstances. Consult your local professional elder law advocate. If you require help, we encourage you to identify competent professionals in your area to assist you with your concerns and suggest that you identify a practitioner in the “Find a Guardian” section of the National Guardianship Association website that serves your area of interest. The NGA Ethical Principles, Standards of Practice, and The Fundamentals of Guardianship (available for purchase on amazon.com) are additional resources to guide guardians in their decision making responsibilities.
In addition, you might find the answer on our FAQ’s page.
