A hearing is where the Tribunal considers the reports and documents provided by the parties and witnesses, listens to the information provided by the parties and witnesses, considers the evidence presented and then makes a decision about the application.
At the Guardianship Division, we try to make the hearing as relaxed as possible, particularly for the person who is the subject of the application. We know that coming to a hearing can be a new experience for everyone concerned - the person the hearing is about, the applicant, the persons family and friends.
For this reason, we have:
support information for you to read
before the hearing
support information about what happens
during the hearing
information about what happens next and who to go to for further assistance
after the hearing.
For more details, please see the fact sheets available for download from
Publications and resources.
