Post-appointment rights for an adult under guardianship allow the adult to exercise as much autonomy and independence as possible, while providing the adult with dignity. Although all post-appointment rights are important, this article focuses on four: (1) listing the rights and notifying the adult and their surrogates of these post-appointment rights; (2) the post-appointment rights of the adult to marry and to obtain a divorce; (3) the adult’s right of visitation with others; and (4) the adult’s right to seek termination of a guardianship. Recommendations from the authors focus on increasing the protections for adults with these post-appointment rights
