(2)the guardian or conservator is ineligible for appointment in this State.

e.The final order accepting the proceeding and appointing the guardian or conservator from the other state as guardian of the person or estate, or both, or conservator in this State shall be issued upon the receipt by this States court of a final order issued under provisions similar to section 17 of P.L.2012, c.36 (C.3B:12B-17) transferring the proceeding to this State.

f.Upon application of a party or upon the courts own motion, the court shall determine whether the guardianship of the person or estate, or both, or the conservatorship needs to be modified to conform to the law of this State.

g.In granting an application under this section, the court shall recognize a guardianship or conservatorship order from the other state, including the determination of the incapacitated persons incapacity and the appointment of the guardian of the person or estate, or both, or of the conservator.

h.The denial by a court of this State of an application to accept a guardianship or conservatorship transferred from another state does not affect the ability of the guardian or conservator to seek appointment as guardian of the person or estate, or both, in this State under N.J.S.3B:12-25 or as conservator under N.J.S.3B:13A-1 et seq., if the court has jurisdiction to make an appointment other than by reason of the provisional order of transfer.
