GMP Changes Effective Immediately (Temporary) Please Read

Due to a significant reduction in our volunteer numbers, the following changes will be EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY:


PDF Version


1. Final Accounting hearings will be set 60 days out instead of 30 days. GMP will have 60 days to audit instead of 30 days.


2. Accountings will be audited based on assets in the guardianship instead of date filed. More complex asset cases will be handled first.


3. Letters of Guardianship will be extended without a hearing, however, a phone call is required to activate this form being filed in the Court file. The guardian or attorney of record will be able to give telephonic approval to GMP staff for THIS FORM only. I have attached a copy of this form for your information, but it will only be used to extend letters of guardianship. If there are other issues that need to be addressed, the guardian or attorney of record will need to present our standard forms to the Guardianship Exparte Thursday Mornings at 9:00 a.m. in Courtroom 202. GMP Staff will email or mail a copy of the signed Order only. The Guardian or Attorney for Guardian will have to go to the Clerk's office and pay the fee to obtain the extended letters of guardianship.


We appreciate your understanding and patience while we work on actively recruiting more volunteers.

If you have questions, please contact GMP Staff, (509) 477-2622.
