Proposed Standardized Practices for Ohio Adult Guardianship Cases

Court News Ohio yesterday briefed “The Ohio Supreme Court was considering new rules to promote standardized policies and practices in adult guardianship cases, designed to guide local courts to establish guardianships that meet best practices and are consistent with national trends in such cases, hold guardians accountable, and ensure that the best interests of vulnerable adults are protected.

“Rules of Superintendence 66.01 - 66.09 have been in development since 2007 when the Supreme Court’s Advisory Committee on Children and Families convened a subcommittee on adult guardianship to draft minimum standards,” CNO reported, “with additional input being provided by the Ohio Association of Probate Judges. The proposed rules  are based on those minimum standards.”
