These “How To Instructions” are designed to assist a unrepresented guardian with standard issues in guardianships. If the guardian has an attorney of record (filed a Notice of Appearance) only he/she can represent the guardian and must present all documents. Additionally, all questions, should be directed to the guardian’s attorney. If the guardian no longer wants the attorney, a Notice of Withdrawal is required to be filed by the guardian’s attorney. As an unrepresented guardian you may want to know “How To” respond to a request from the court or need to set a hearing or petition for instructions, these instructions will set forth the process and let you know the expectations of the court. This is NOT a substitute for legal advice. GMP staff cannot give legal advice.
