Geoffrey D. Mueller, Esq. Joins New Jersey Guardianship Monitoring Program

Effective immediately, the Law Offices of Geoffrey D. Mueller is proud to announce that Geoffrey D. Mueller will be volunteering as a member of the New Jersey Guardianship Monitoring Program.  "The New Jersey Judiciary Guardianship Monitoring Program (GMP) is a comprehensive statewide volunteer-based court program established to monitor guardians in their handling of the affairs of incapacitated individuals, including elderly and developmentally disabled adults.

"The goal of the GMP is to safeguard and reduce the potential for abuse and exploitation of incapacitated individuals by their guardians. The program is committed to helping ensure that these vulnerable members of society are treated with dignity and respect, while also assisting guardians in their sometimes difficult role.

"The GMP monitors guardianship cases to ensure that guardians of incapacitated persons are performing their duties appropriately. Monitoring and oversight of guardianships helps identify, address, prevent, and deter activities that are harmful to incapacitated individuals.

"Trained GMP volunteers use the Guardianship Monitoring System (GMS), a computer application comprised of a statewide guardianship database and a report review tool, to track and follow up on guardianship files. The volunteers’ work ensures that guardians comply with statutory and court-ordered requirements to file documents and reports and manage the affairs of incapacitated individuals effectively."

***

"The program, which is expected to be statewide by June 2014, is currently in four counties – Hunterdon, Passaic, Burlington and Mercer. Prospective volunteers in other counties will be kept informed about the start of the program in their counties.
