Section 5-310: Termination of guardianship for incapacitated person

Section 5-310. [Termination of Guardianship for Incapacitated Person.]

The authority and responsibility of a guardian of an incapacitated person terminates upon the death of the guardian or incapacitated person, the determination of incapacity of the guardian, the determination that the person is no longer incapacitated, or upon removal or resignation as provided in section 5-311. Testamentary appointment under an informally probated will terminates if the will is later denied probate in a formal proceeding. Termination shall not affect a guardian's liability for prior acts or the obligation to report or account for funds and assets of the incapacitated person.
