RULE 10-207. RESIGNATION OF GUARDIAN OF THE PERSON AND APPOINTMENT OF SUBSTITUTED OR SUCCESSOR GUARDIAN
(a) Commencement of Action. A petition to resign may be filed in accordance with this Rule by a guardian of the person who has exercised no control over any property of the minor or disabled person or by a public guardian. The petition shall state the reasons for the resignation and may request the appointment of a substitute or successor guardian. When a guardian of the person resigns, dies, is removed, or becomes otherwise incapable of filling the position, and there is no substituted or successor guardian of the person already named, the court may, on its own initiative or on the petition filed by any interested person, appoint a substituted or successor guardian of the person.
Committee note: If the original guardian, other than a public guardian, has exercised control over any property of the minor or disabled person, resignation and appointment of a successor shall be in accordance with Rule 10-711.
