If you are petitioning to be a guardian or a conservator in Hennepin County, you must watch this series of videos about the responsibilities of being a guardian or conservator in Minnesota. It’s good viewing for individuals considering being a guardian or conservator in any county in Minnesota. I have all of my clients watch it and many of them are surprised by the duties and responsibilities that come with being fiduciary for an incapacitated person.
Beginning on December 1, 2011, proposed guardians and/or conservators in the Fourth Judicial District (Hennepin County, MN), must view an educational video prior to the initial hearing. They will also be required to submit a modified version of the acceptance and oath, stating that they have viewed the video.
