Guardianships



If the Circuit Court has entered an order appointing you as Guardian of an unemancipated minor, then you are required to qualify as such in the office of the Clerk of the Circuit Court. This Date of Qualification will be the basis for all due dates of your reporting requirements to the Commissioner of Accounts. If you are the guardian for a minor, the responsibilities of being the primary caretaker and decision-maker for that minor takes precedence over accounting and reporting. Many Guardians I have had the pleasure to work with are overwhelmed by the day-to-day responsibilities and oftentimes, preparing an accounting report is simply not within their capabilities due to time constraints or the simple fact that it can be an overwhelming and confusing task. Estate Accounting Solutions is prepared to shoulder this responsibility with you. Estate Accounting Solutions can prepare the following reports for the Guardianship:
