Changes in Ohio Revised Code 2111.50 Expand Guardian Estate Planning Powers
A guardianship is a court-ordered supervision in which a person makes decisions for and acts on for another adult person.
On August 17, 2021, Ohio Guardianship Law (Revised Code 2111.50) became law. The new law broadens Guardian estate planning powers and establishes new protections for people's interests in the estate. Previously, Guardians could not alter or make estate plans.
The ORC 2111.50 grants Guardians significant additional legal powers. It is important to contact a legal professional for further questions/support.
A guardian may still not make or change a will on behalf of a ward. Refer to the linked new code section for details on the new due process protections.
