Tentative Ruling
Judge Colleen Sterne
Department 5 SB-Anacapa
1100 Anacapa Street P.O. Box 21107 Santa Barbara, CA 93121-1107


Guardianship of Heather Lynn Karsh

Case No: 18PR00414
Hearing Date: Thu Jan 16, 2020 9:00

Nature of Proceedings: Status of 1st Accounting

The ability to control and make decisions concerning assets  does not constitute  relief from the requirement of accounting.  Inventory and appraisal were waived, but particularly becuase the Ward is turing 18 in one year, to have a record of what the estate consisted of at the inception of the guardianship, income and expenses during the operation of the guardianship, and the ending balance to be distributed to the minor when she turns 18 is required.  Without this information, there would be no recourse for the minor if any inappropraite financial actions were taken.  The court will require an accounting.  A continuance to provide an accounting will be permitted.
