248.     Variation of guardianship order.


The High Court2 may make an order varying a guardianship order either with or without an application being made3. It may do so only if it is satisfied that:


    (1)     the person whose property or financial affairs are the subject of the guardianship order is missing4;


    (2)     the absence condition or the urgency condition is met5; and


    (3)     in all the circumstances, the proposed variation is in the missing person's best interests6.

The court may appoint a different person to be the guardian7, add or remove property or financial affairs8,
