  • Paul Steinberg

    The assumption is that the guardian (presumably the person closest to the incapacitated person) is not acting in accordance with the wishes of the incapacitated person. There may be a very good reason why someone does not want certain siblings or children visiting them. We don‘t all have "Mayberry RFD" families.

  • Elaine Renoire, NASGA

    Our sincere thanks to Assemblyman Magnarelli and Senator John DeFrancisco for working with Falk~NASGA on this bill which will help better protect NY guardianship wards of the state.
