What are the responsibilities of a guardian?

Excellence is our standard.

In essence, a guardian’s responsibilities toward the ward are the same as a parent. Provide the ward with medical care, shelter, food, visitation, exc. If individual is the guardian over the estate or conservator, then that person needs to pay the ward’s bills timely and properly invest the ward’s income.

For most cases, this isn’t a problem because a relative is usually the one who becomes the guardian to care for the ward. But that doesn’t always happen. Furthermore, the person acting a guardian or conservator does not always understand that they need to take greater care in keeping his/her property separate from from the ward’s.

An often overlooked responsibility of the guardian is the necessity to file an inventory with the court periodically. The guardian can be removed from that role if the ward’s inventory is not filed in a timely fashion.
