Standby guardianship. Allows a parent who is seriously ill to designate, either by obtaining prior court approval or by a more informal written designation, a standby guardian. The other parent and specified family members are to be given notice of the appointment. The standby guardian will be authorized to act for the parent with respect to a minor child of the parent upon the occurrence of a "triggering event," which must be specified by the court or the parent (e.g., the parent's incompetence or debilitation and consent). Provisions are included for reviewing continuation of an ongoing standby guardianship and for revoking or otherwise terminating the authority of the standby guardian. Responsibility is placed on the standby guardian to ensure that permanent arrangements for the care of the child are made when the parent is no longer able to do so.
