The American Bar Association Commission on Law and Aging compiled and published in June 2009 a list of stories it purports to support the need for national passage of the UAGPPJA.
An issue which arises often is when siblings litigate over custody of a parent. Sometimes, a sister and a brother will have protracted litigation in one state over who is to be appointed conservator over their mother or father. Then, sometime after the sister wins, she wants to move both her mother or her father and herself to another state. Will the sister have to be put through protracted litigation by her brother all over again in the second state?
The Uniform Adult Guardianship and Protective Proceeding Jurisdiction Act purports to provide transfer procedures which would allow the sister to transfer the conservatorship from the first state to the second state without the need to re-litigate the case. Proper Notice would be given to the brother and he could participate in the transfer proceedings. The American Bar Association Commission on Law and Aging purports that there would be a preservation of resources by both the family and the court.
