Indiana Guardians Can't Dissolve Marriages

Marriagediss

In McGee v. McGee, the Indiana Court of Appeals reaffirmed that Indiana statutes don’t authorize guardians to file petitions for dissolution of marriage on behalf of their wards.

Indiana statutes do allow guardians to make decisions for the benefit of incapacitated persons, but the filing of petitions for the dissolution of marriage is not one of those decisions.

See Luke Lantta, Indiana Guardians Not Permitted to File Petitions for Dissolution of Marriage, Bryan Cave Fiduciary Litigation, Nov. 7, 2013.
