Can the Court Appoint Someone Other Than the Petitioner as Guardian?

Generally, if the court is satisfied that the petitioner is a suitable person to be appointed guardian, such determination being considered separately with regard to guardian of the person and guardian of the property, the petitioner will be appointed legal guardian. However, the court may decide to appoint someone other than the petitioner, including a complete stranger to the family, such as an attorney, to serve as guardian and may appoint different people to serve as to guardian of the person and guardian of the property. Therefore, it is important to go to court prepared.
