Maine Revised Statutes

§5-201. Status of guardian of minor; general

A person becomes a guardian of a minor by acceptance of a testamentary appointment or upon appointment by the court. The guardianship status continues until terminated, without regard to the location from time to time of the guardian and minor ward. This section does not apply to permanency guardians appointed in District Court child protective proceedings. If a minor has a permanency guardian, the court may not appoint another guardian without leave of the District Court in which the child protective proceeding is pending. [2005, c. 372, §1 (AMD).]
