Thanks to changes in Ohio law, there is now a clear procedure for wards and family members of wards seeking court intervention when a guardian isn’t meeting the requirements of his job. Every county probate court is required to have procedures in place to evaluate guardian complaints and if the complaints merit it, set the same for hearing. The court may also schedule the relevant parties for mediation. In more extreme cases, an action may be needed to remove the guardian.
