Guardianship Guide Updated

Our Guide to the Guardianship and Administration Act 2019 (Vic) has been updated to reflect the last six months of jurisprudence since commencement, with new case discussion and principles. Updates include: 

  • Incorporating the principles relating to decision-making capacity from the recent decision of IFZ (Guardianship) [2020] VCAT 582, which aligned the test from PBU and NJE v Mental Health Tribunal [2018] VSC 564 into the guardianship context;
  • Clarifying the considerations in making a guardianship and administration order for ease of reference; and
  • Including commentary from recent cases decided since the commencement of the 2019 Act.

The Guide to the Guardianship and Administration Act 2019 (Vic) is available here.
