Annual Report of Guardian

Every year, a Guardian of an adult, and a guardian who is not related to his or her minor ward, must file an Annual Report stating the condition of the ward, whether the Guardianship should continue, how he or she cared for the ward during the last year, and what the plans are to care for the ward for the next year. A Guardian is obligated to provide the most reasonable care that is possible under the circumstances.

No court form is sent to you in advance. You must remember to do this yourself. The form you write must be called "Annual Report of Guardian."

The Guardian must file the Annual Report with the Probate Registrar and send copies to Probate Court Administration, to the ward, and to all other interested persons. Forms are available at the Self-Service Center.
