Notice: The court may order you to answer questions about the finances of the ward or conservatee and later order
you, as guardian or conservator of his or her estate, to pay back waived fees. The court may also direct you to make
efforts to collect money to pay back waived fees from persons who owe a duty to support the ward or conservatee. If
the fees are not paid back, the court may also charge collection fees.
If there is a change in the financial circumstances of the ward or conservatee during this case that increases his or her
ability to pay fees and costs, you must notify the trial court within five days. (Use form FW-010-GC for this purpose.)
If this case is a civil action against another person on behalf of the ward or conservatee and you win it, the trial court
may order the other side to pay the fees. If you settle the case against another person for $10,000 or more payable to
the ward’s or conservatee’s estate, the trial court will have a lien on the settlement in the amount of the waived fees.
The trial court may not dismiss the case until the lien is paid.
The court may also have a lien against the ward’s or conservatee’s estate that must be paid before the estate is
distributed, the guardianship or conservatorship proceeding is concluded, and you are discharged as guardian or
conservator.
I declare under penalty of perjury under the laws of the State of California that the information above is true and
correct.
