Sometimes it becomes apparent that a guardianship is no longer necessary, or the level of restrictiveness is no longer appropriate. The marriage of a ward (an adult with a disability for whom a guardianship has been established) terminates guardianship of the person but not the estate. There is a presumption that the new husband/wife will now oversee the personal care of his or her spouse. If two individuals who are under a guardianship get married, both will no longer have guardians of their person.
Only the court can terminate a guardianship. This process is started by submitting a motion to the probate court.
