Removal of Father as Guardian for Son

The Orphans’ Court did not abuse its discretion to remove the incapacitated person’s father as guardian of his person when the father had breached his fiduciary duties by comingling funds, failed to comply with court orders by failing to provide financial records to the new guardian of the estate, and did not prioritize his son’s best interests when his son expressed wishes different from his father’s, and it was not an abuse of discretion to remove the father summarily and appoint the agency that has been serving as the guardian of the estate as the guardian of the person. In re: Estate of C.E.P., an Incapacitated Person, 2357 EDA 2023 (Pa. Super. 6/4/2024) (non-precedential).
