A guardian may be appointed by the court for minor children. In order to sell or dispose of minors’ interest in a parent’s land, a guardian must be appointed by the Probate Court to sign the deed for them. The expense of having the guardian appointed, bond for the guardian, appraisals, court costs and attorney’s frees are charged to the minor.
The guardian applies to the court for permission and approval to sell land or to spend the children’s money for their support or education. The guardian must account for income and disbursements — by court action if necessary.
