SECTION 79.31
Discharge of guardian
Mental Hygiene (MHY) CHAPTER 27, TITLE E, ARTICLE 79
§ 79.31 Discharge of guardian.

(a) When a minor ward for whom a guardian has been appointed under the
provisions of this article or other laws of this state shall have
attained his or her majority, and if incompetent, shall be declared
competent by the administration and the court, and when any incompetent
ward, not a minor, shall be declared competent by said administration
and the court, the guardian shall upon making a satisfactory accounting
be discharged upon a petition filed for that purpose. Provided, however,
if a guardian has received other property in addition to the benefits
from the administration and income from such benefits, his discharge as
to such property shall, in the case of an incompetent ward, be governed
by the laws which govern the discharge of a committee of an incompetent,
and in the case of an infant ward, by the laws which govern the
discharge of a guardian of an infant.
