Veterans' Guardianships are governed by R.C. Chap. 5905 and to the extent that there are special rules established therein for veterans' guardianship, those rules shall apply. In every other respect, the general guardianship laws and rules shall apply.
For all guardianship proceedings wherein the proposed ward is receiving income from the Department of Veterans Affairs, the VA shall be a necessary party, entitled to notice and copies of all initial pleadings, all applications for attorney and guardian fees, applications for authority to expend funds for an extraordinary expenditure, and the annual and final accountings. All notices to the Department of Veterans Affairs shall be sent by the guardian and not the Court.
The Court shall supply the guardian or the attorney for the guardian, at no cost, certified copies of any of the pleadings filed in the proceedings, for submission to the Department of Veterans Affairs.
All Applications for guardian’s compensation or attorney’s fees shall be set for hearing, and notice shall be given to the Department of Veterans Affairs, unless a Waiver or Consent is obtained.
