Recognising the appoinment of a Guardian or Administrator made outside Tasmania

The Board can recognise and register appointments of guardians and/or administrators made under corresponding law by other courts and tribunals in other Australian states or territories.

Applications for recognising the appointment of a Guardian or Administrator made outside Tasmania can only be made by the person who was appointed as guardian and/or administrator. The form should be submitted along with a copy of the original instrument of his or her appointment, a certified copy of that instrument or other evidence satisfactory to the Board of that appointment.

When the appointment is recognised, the Board will send the order to the recognised guardian or administrator, the person under guardianship or administration, and to the court or tribunal that made the original order in the other state or territory. The order is the authority to act in Tasmania within the terms of the original order of the other state. This recognition only has effect for the period of time specified in the original order.
