Reassessment of the need for guardianship

Upon petition, the District Court will terminate a guardianship, once there no longer is need for one. The petition for termination may be filed by the client himself or herself, the guardian, or the Registry Office. The petition for termination may also be filed by the parent, spouse, child or other person close to the client. The Registry Office may also terminate a guardianship. This, however, requires that the client and the guardian file a petition for termination together.

In order to ensure that no one is under guardianship without reason, the Registry Office reviews all guardianships every four years and determines whether they should continue.
