Question:
What happens if an objection is filed with the court in a Guardianship or Conservatorship proceeding?

Answer:
If an objection is received by the court, a hearing will be scheduled. In most case, the judge will appoint the Petitioner. In a contested case there may be testimony from the Respondent or other Interested Persons and witnesses. However, more frequently, the Respondent is incapacitated and the matter proceeds without their input or direction.
