Maine Revised Statutes

§5-612. Compensation

(a).    The public guardian or conservator shall receive such reasonable amounts for its expenses as guardian or conservator as the Probate Court may allow. The amounts so allowed shall be allocated to an account from which may be drawn expenses for filing fees, bond premiums, court costs and other expenses required in the administration of the functions of the public guardian or conservator. No amounts thus received may inure to the benefit of any employee of the public guardian or conservator. Any balance in the account at the end of a fiscal year shall not lapse but shall be carried forward from year to year and used for the purposes provided for in this subsection.
[ 1987, c. 295, (AMD) .]
(b).    Any personal expenditures made on the ward's or protected person's behalf by the public guardian or conservator shall, when properly evidenced, be reimbursed out of the ward's or protected person's estate. Claims for services rendered by state agencies shall be submitted to the probate judge for approval before payment.
