Received letter of" notice of deficiency", am guardian for my daughter. Don't understand what I may have or filled out a paper wrong.
Could you help.
Without seeing the notice you received, it would be difficult to determine what you may have done. I suggest you find a probate attorney in your area, bring the notice you received to their office, and have a meaningful consultation.
Please note that I answered this question with limited disclosure from you, my answer does not create an attorney-client relationship and I cannot be held responsible for how you, the asker, use the information provided. If you want to contact me directly and retain my services you may through my listing on this site.
It will say on the notice itself what the deficiency is. You can also contact the Probate Court and have a clerk explain it to you. Normally, with a guardianship, your main requirement is to file an annual report on the condition of the ward. It is my guess that you failed to file that report on time. The notice usually states that you have 60 days to rectify the deficiency.
A copy of the report form can be found, here: http://courts.mi.gov/Administration/SCAO/Forms/courtforms/pc634.pdf
(That is the form for an incapacitated individual. If you are guardian because your daughter is a minor, you would use THIS form, instead):
