Read this form carefully. All checked boxes
are court orders.
Notice: The court may order you to answer questions about the ward’s or conservatee’s finances after granting a waiver
and may order payment of the waived fees from his or her estate. If this happens and the fees are not paid, the court can
also charge collection 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 there is a change in the ward’s or conservatee’s financial
circumstances 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.)
If this case is an action against another party and you win the case on behalf of the ward or conservatee, the trial court
may order the other side to pay some or all of the waived fees. If you settle the matter for $10,000 or more, 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.
