FAQ:  Can a guardian just quit, or is court approval required.

A guardian who is appointed by the Court may not just “quit” or resign.  Court approval is required.  See Minn. Stat. 524.5-112  The Guardian, or an interested person, should file a petition with the court asking for approval of resignation and the appointment of a successor guardian.  A successor guardian should be selected in advance and named in the petition, or the court is likely to not approve the resignation request.
