There isnt a presribed form but you need to file a notice of intention to appear, and file affidavits in support. If you are all opposed you can use the same form to indicate this. Is there a reason you oppose this person named in the application? I will post a form you can used, based on the front page of the documents you have filed

My 32 year old niece has applied for property manager and welfare guardianship as she was brought up by our mother and believes she can do a better job than us 7 siblings including her mother. Her motive is she has formed a unhealthy possessive attachment due to our mother and has engaged a lawyer and served us 7 siblings orders.

The family court have appointed a lawyer to represent my mother however my mother hasn't met or spoke with anyone yet. I am existing EPOA for personal care and welfare - not sure about property however that's being challenged at the moment. My mother has moderate dementia and is currently being looked after by a sister and her husband. She is safe, warm, well fed and clean. We relocated her last week from living on her own to being closer to the family and my niece doesn't like it.
Solicitor: Chris The Lawyer, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

If there is an existing EPOA then there would need to be very good reasons to change this. I would suggest you get a lawyer to oppose but the form to base the appearance on is pasted below-adapt so it looks like the forms served on you

Now I remember before providing my visa debit card details that i had a free trial but the email said my card would be debited $48. Do I just copy and paste form on to a word doc?
Solicitor: Chris The Lawyer, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

Yes, you can use this like that. i suggest you take the form down to the court and make sure they are ok with it. You should still preferably instruct a lawyer though

Will do thank you. *****'m really worried that I've been charged $48 in error because I thought it was $5.00 and then I saw a free trial posted as well. In my haste I only agreed to the $5.00 fee. what do you suggest I do?
Solicitor: Chris The Lawyer, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

I dont handle the accounting side, just the law. So send a query to***@******.***
