extend the period of a Personal Order or Order appointing a Welfare Guardian (the court must also set a date for the next review being 5 years or a lesser period if the court thinks appropriate from the date of the new order)
extend an Order to Appoint a Property Manager (the court must set another date for review that is not later than 3 years after the date of the new order).
When the court makes the Order, it will say who is responsible for making an application for a review and when a review application must be made.
As part of the review the court will look at whether the person the Order has been made for can:
understand the nature of decisions about their own personal care and welfare, and manage their property
understand what could happen as a result of such decisions
say what they want about such decisions.
The court can also look at whether the person who has been appointed as a welfare guardian or property manager is still the best person to carry out this role.
Who can ask for a review
An application to review an Order can be made at any time by:
the person who the Order is for
the welfare guardian or property manager.
You should file your application at the court closest to where the person who the Order is for lives.
