When does guardianship end?
In Utah, guardianship ends when:
- The court finds that a ward is capable of making responsible decisions and managing his or her affairs
- The guardian wishes to resign and the court agrees to accept the guardian’s resignation
- The guardian becomes incapacitated or dies
- The court removes the guardian for some reason
- The ward dies (the guardian still needs to petition the court in order to end his/her responsibilities to the court)
