Request a review of a guardianship order
Guardians are appointed by the Guardianship Division of the NSW Civil & Administrative Tribunal (NCAT) for a set amount of time – normally for up to one year (or up to three years in special circumstances).
Generally, NCAT will review guardianship orders before the end date of the order, unless they decide there is no need for a review.
In this case, the order simply lapses at the end of the set time period.
How can I request a review of a guardianship order?
You can request a review if:
you have a genuine concern for the person with a guardianship order
the order is not working in the best interest of the person
circumstances have changed affecting the order
there is no further need for a guardian.
How is a guardianship order reviewed?
A guardianship order is reviewed at a NCAT hearing.
At the hearing, NCAT can:
renew the order for three years (or five years in special circumstances)
renew and vary the order (this means changing the guardian and/or their decision-making areas)
allow the order to lapse.
