A written application for the allowance of attorney fees for guardianship administration, signed by the attorney and fiduciary and supported by the attorney’s time records, shall be filed with the Court. Attorney fees may be requested following the filing of the Guardian’s Inventory and annually thereafter. An attorney fee of $1,000.00 for services rendered through the filing of the Inventory and a fee of $1,500.00 for services relating to the filing of the annual account shall be rebuttably presumed to be reasonable.
Except for good cause shown, neither compensation for a guardian, nor fees to the attorney representing such guardian, will be allowed while such guardian is delinquent in filing an inventory, account, or Guardian's Report. The Court may deny or reduce compensation if there is such a delinquency or failure to faithfully discharge the duties of fiduciary.
