Text reads: Title: Relocation.
The guardian will also need to research laws that can impact guardianship status in the event of relocation. The Uniform Adult Guardianship and Protective Proceedings Jurisdiction Act has been adopted by many states. In those states, the incapacitation order may be recognized in the new jurisdiction if the guardian notifies the originating court and registers the original guardianship order with the local court at the new location. If relocating to a state that does not recognize out-of-state guardianships or conservatorships, the legal process may have to be repeated.
