In Re: Guardianship of Nathan Barney

A petition has been filed requesting appointment of Angela Barney as Guardian of Nathan Barney. A copy of the petition is attached. Appointment of a Guardian or Conservator is not evidence of incompetence.

Respondent's Rights and Obligations: The Respondent must be physically present at the hearing unless excused by the court. The Respondent has a right to attend the hearing, to be represented by an attorney, to oppose the petition and to present evidence. If the Respondent wishes to be represented by an attorney, the Respondent must either obtain one of Respondent's own choosing or if the Respondent has no funds to pay an attorney, the Respondent may call the Court to request an attorney Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Petition for Guardian: If the petition is granted, the Respondent will be found unable to manage Respondent's personal affairs and the proposed Guardian or some other suitable and competent person or persons will be appointed Guardian. Several of the Respondent's rights will be given to the Guardian, including the right to make health care decisions for the Respondent, determine where the Respondent shall live, and if no conservator is appointed, to make contracts for the Respondent.

Petition for Conservator: If the petition is granted, the Respondent will be found unable to manage Respondent's financial affairs and the proposed Conservator or some other suitable and competent person or persons will be appointed Conservator. Several of the Respondent's rights will be given to the Conservator, including the right to manage and control money and other property, and to make contracts for Respondent.

YOU ARE HEREBY NOTIFIED that a hearing on the petition will be held at 1:45 p.m. on November 14, 2017 at St. Louis County Courthouse, Duluth, Minnesota.
