Restoration of Rights

A person who was determined to be incompetent can return to Court and request a hearing as to whether they are now competent. Medical evidence will likely be needed to show that the person is now competent. The Court may also order an Multi-Disciplinary evaluation of the person by a court appointed evaluator.  After the hearing, if found to be competent, the Court will issue an order of restoration to competency.
