Much of the current focus on Article 17-A involves the constitutional rights of the alleged incapacitated person (AIP). This article highlights a different concern: when the AIP is clearly in need of a guardian and fits the parameters set forth in Article 17-A, but the proposed guardian may not be suitable or appropriate to act as guardian for a multitude of reasons. For example, the parents of an adult AIP may be divorced, but both want to be named as co-guardians and the rights of each co-guardian must be detailed. Or, the proposed guardian may make appropriate decisions regarding medical care for the AIP, but there are concerns about what the proposed guardian deems to be a safe and appropriate living environment.
