GUIDING FAMILIES THROUGH THE SEASONS OF LIFE

Can More Than One Person Serve As Guardian in Minnesota?

Clients often ask me whether more than one person can be guardian for an individual.  The answer is yes – so long as the co-guardians are able to work together to do their work. It is imperative that the co-guardians be able to communicate with one another and have a good working relationship. It’s also important to remember that each guardian must submit an annual personal well being report (some counties allow one report to be submitted, as long as it is signed by each co-guardian).

In very rare instances, courts have allowed 3 individuals to be co-guardians. This will usually occur when mom and dad want to be guardians for their developmentally disabled adult child, but they also want to add one of the adult child’s siblings as a co-guardian, so that there is a smooth transition when mom and/or dad pass away.
