My uncle has recently taken over Guardianship for his elderly father. Both are Texas residents. The Guardianship has been approved (superseded from deceased sibling) and bond has been issued. While reviewing all the documentation, my Uncle located a Durable POA which was executed and file-stamped a few years prior to establishing Guardianship. Uncle also mentions a Medical POA but I've not confirmed that yet. He is not aware that either were ever revoked by his Father.
The question is can the Guardianship, or at least the financial side, be dissolved in favor of the POA? The obvious benefit is that the POA is sweeping and it doesn't seem that there is any oversight. Not that he has any misplaced intentions but the Guardianship, as it is, creates a greater burden on all parties and is not what I would think best for judicial economy. He has already expended a great deal of effort and over $1000 (for which the Estate will be billed) just to get the paperwork and accounts in order. Now he sees that he must begin liquidating assets so that his father may have a decent standard of living in his final years. I know he can ask the Court to liquidate but all discussion leads me to believe this Court usually dictates onerous terms for such.
Sorry if this belongs elsewhere but I thought this forum to be the best fit.
