I'm sorry to hear of your sister's declining health;
The person that would like to challenge the petition would need to file an objection and indicate their willingness to serve. The court will also evaluate the petitioner's ability to serve per the following statute;
Proposed guardian unsuitable. If the court finds that the proposed guardian is unsuitable, the court shall request that a petition proposing a suitable guardian be filed, shall set a date for a hearing to be held within 30 days, and shall require the guardian ad litem to investigate the suitability of a new proposed guardian. -https://docs.legis.wisconsin.gov/statutes/statutes/54/IV/40
Normally the guardian ad litem will make the challenge if they feel the petitioning party is unsuitable. -
please see page 13 here
Normally if a person petitions for guardianship of the person (versus the estate) they can also request guardianship of the estate. The proper jurisdiction is where the ward resides; then the case can be transferred to the guardian's county of residence, if the ward relocates there.
