(b) On Petition of Interested Persons. An interested person may file a petition to remove a standby guardian. The petition shall be filed in the court that appointed the standby guardian or, if there is a written parental designation pursuant to Code, Estates and Trusts Article, § 13-904 (a) and the court has not yet assumed jurisdiction over the standby guardianship, in the county where the minor resides or is physically present.
