9525.3030 LIMITS OF GUARDIANSHIP POWERS AND DUTIES.

Under Minnesota Statutes, section 525.56, a guardian has only those powers necessary to provide for the demonstrated needs of the ward. The guardian is granted the duty and power to exercise supervisory authority over the ward in a manner that limits civil rights and restricts personal freedoms only to the extent necessary to provide needed care and services. The department staff acting as public guardian or county staff acting as public guardian shall intervene under parts 9525.3010 to 9525.3100, only if the court has determined that the ward is incapable of exercising certain rights.
