Rule 49. Administrative Closure of a Minor Guardianship or Minor Conservatorship Case
(a) Administrative Closure of a Minor Guardianship Case. Consistent with A.R.S. § 14-5210, the clerk or court administrator, as designated by the presiding judge, must administratively close a minor guardianship case filed under A.R.S. §§ 14-5201 to 14-5212 when the minor reaches the age of majority, or upon the minor's adoption, marriage, emancipation, or death.
(b) Administrative Closure of a Minor Conservatorship Case. The court must administratively close the conservatorship and terminate the conservator's appointment if no order terminating a conservatorship for a minor has been entered within two years after the minor's eighteenth birthday. The court must notify the conservator and the former minor that the conservatorship will be administratively closed unless, within 90 days after the notice, the conservator or the former minor files a petition to terminate the conservatorship and obtains an initial hearing date. An order under this rule that administratively closes a conservatorship and terminates the conservator's appointment does not
(1) discharge the conservator from liability,
(2) authorize the release of any restricted conservatorship assets,
(3) release any financial institution holding restricted conservatorship assets from liability, or
(4) exonerate the conservator's bond.
