§ 81.37 Resignation or suspension of powers of guardian.

(a) The court appointing a guardian may allow the guardian to resign or may suspend the powers of the guardian.

(b) Where a guardian is engaged in war service as defined in section seven hundred seventeen of the surrogate's court procedure act, the court, upon motion by the guardian or any other person and upon such notice as the court may direct, may suspend the powers of the guardian until further order of the court. If the suspension will leave no other person acting as guardian, the motion shall seek the appointment of a successor. When the suspended guardian becomes able to serve, he or she may be reinstated by the court upon motion and such notice as the court may direct. If the suspended guardian is reinstated, the court shall thereupon discharge his or her successor, who may be required to account, and make any other order as justice requires.
