Abstract

This article will begin by exploring the genesis of standby guardianship legislation. It will then compare and contrast the features of the statutes enacted thus far, identify the policies those statutes seek to foster, and analyze which existing statutory features appear to best promote such policies. The goal is for trust and estate lawyers to be better prepared to take an active role in drafting and improving standby guardianship legislation in their respective states.
