Guardianship and conservatorship of incapacitated persons. Makes several changes to the provisions of adult guardianships and conservatorships, including (i) requiring a guardian ad litem appointed to represent a respondent to a guardianship proceeding to notify the court as soon as practicable if the respondent requests counsel, regardless of whether the guardian ad litem recommends counsel; (ii) requiring the notice of hearing on a guardianship or conservatorship petition to include notice that any adult individual or entity required to receive a copy of such notice may become a party to the proceeding by filing a pleading with the circuit court in which the case is pending; and (iii) requiring an appointed guardian to include in his annual report to the local department of social services certain additional information.
