Jurisdiction to Determine Incapacity

The court lacks jurisdiction to determine incapacity when Pennsylvania is not the “home state” of the incapacitated person under the Uniform Adult Guardian and Protective Proceedings Jurisdictional Act (20 Pa.C.S. 5901 et seq.) and an agent under a power of attorney has objected to the court’s jurisdiction, because the agent is a person entitled to notice of the proceeding.  Greco Estate, 7 Fid.Rep.3d 50 (O.C. Montgomery Co. 2016).
