This was originally setup to protect a settelement from a malpractice suit. We have not had to do annual accounting. He is going to collage and needs the money for school.

    Answered . I am surprised you were not ordered to file annual accounting of the assets, but that could be because of the amount of the funds. A Petition for Termination of Guardianship with an accompanying Order will accomplish your need. The Petition will have to state the reasoning for the termination, i.e. he is over 18, and he has regained capacity, i.e. mental or physical.
