An Incapacitated Person may be a developmentally disabled adult or an adult who has lost the capacity to make and communicate decisions due to illness or injury. When a Petition is filed with the Court, the Court will hold a hearing to determine whether or not the Court should issue a decree declaring that a person is an Incapacitated Person and a Guardian or Guardians should be appointed.
Please contact Helen Blair Schuler, Administrator, Orphans’ Court Services, 610-278-3948, firstname.lastname@example.org, with questions about guardianship forms. Montgomery County Orphans’ Court is fortunate to be working in collaboration with the Office of Aging and Adult Services to support non-professional guardians. For more information about this, please contact Ms. Blair Schuler using the phone or e-mail above.
Please note that Guardians should seek advice of an attorney for any legal questions. Court personnel are not permitted to give legal advice.
What is the process of transferring a guardianship if the Incapacitated Person moves out of Pennsylvania?
The Orphan’s Court Division of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania has exclusive jurisdiction and is the sole authority to make decisions on guardianship related matters. If the Incapacitated Person no longer resides in Pennsylvania the guardian should transfer the guardianship matter from Pennsylvania. In the event of an emergency, it will be more expedient for the local court in the proposed state to have jurisdiction over the case. The local state court will also have greater access to information from local caregivers and medical facilities.
In order to begin the process of transferring jurisdiction, the guardian must first file a “PETITION FOR TRANSFER OF GUARDIANSHIP TO ANOTHER STATE” with this court. For your convenience, the petition can be found on the Orphan’s Court Guardianship Information web page: www.montcopa.org/2465 under the sections of Guardian of the Person and Guardian of the Estate sections. Upon receipt of the petition, this court may issue an order temporarily granting a petition to transfer jurisdiction over the guardianship, unless a hearing is deemed necessary.
Once this court issues the order granting permission to transfer the case to the proposed state, it is the guardian’s responsibility to file a petition with the proposed state requesting guardianship in their jurisdiction. Please contact the local court administrator in the proposed state. It is very important to know and follow the policies for that jurisdiction. For your convenience, we have provided links to the necessary statutes on the Orphan’s Court Guardianship Information web page: http://www.montcopa.org/2465.
Upon receiving a copy of an order accepting this proceeding in the proposed state, this court will issue an order transferring and terminating the guardianship here. Most states will grant “provisional jurisdiction,” which is sufficient for our needs. This court cannot terminate guardianship in this state until you obtain an order from the proposed state.
The process for transferring guardianship cases from Montgomery County, Pennsylvania to another state may seem complex, but it is vital if you ever need an immediate decision in an emergency matter. Though an attorney is not required to complete the transfer process, you may wish to consult a lawyer with specific questions.
A Final Decree may appoint one person as Guardian of the Person and another person as Guardian of the Estate of the Incapacitated Person, or may appoint one person to serve in both roles. The Court may also appoint co-Guardians of the Person or Estate. The Guardian of the Estate generally handles financial affairs while the Guardian of the Person handles health and life decisions.
The role of either Guardian is to represent the rights and best interests of the Incapacitated Person. The Guardian should honor the expressed wishes and preferences of the Incapacitated Person to the greatest extent possible. The Guardian must always act in the best interests of the Incapacitated Person.
