Dealing with Disputes as part of a Will


Most people with impaired decision-making capacity do not need a guardian or administrator because their family, friends or support network help them make decisions. The Tribunal will only appoint a guardian or administrator if there is no other way to ensure that the interests of the person concerned are protected and that his/her needs are met.

An applicant must be able to demonstrate to the Tribunal that there is a specific need for such an appointment and that existing arrangements are inadequate.
