524.5-206 JUDICIAL APPOINTMENT OF GUARDIAN: PRIORITY OF MINOR'S NOMINEE, LIMITED GUARDIANSHIP.

(a) The court shall appoint as guardian a person whose appointment will be in the best interest of the minor. The court shall appoint a person nominated by the minor, if the minor has attained 14 years of age, unless the court finds the appointment will be contrary to the best interest of the minor.

(b) In the interest of developing self-reliance of a ward or for other good cause, the court, at the time of appointment or later, on its own motion or on motion of the minor ward or other interested person, may limit the powers of a guardian otherwise granted by this article and thereby create a limited guardianship. Following the same procedure, additional powers may be granted or existing powers may be withdrawn.
