Section 2111.38 | Bond and duties.


The resident guardian of a nonresident ward shall give bond and be bound and controlled by all the statutes of this state as though the resident guardian were a guardian of a ward resident in this state, and shall have all of the authority of a guardian of a resident ward including the authority to lease or sell real property belonging to the ward.

Unless removed by the probate court, a resident guardian of a nonresident minor shall hold that appointment until the minor dies or arrives at the age of majority, whether or not the minor is over fourteen years of age at the time of appointment. A resident guardian of any other nonresident ward shall hold that appointment until the death of the ward or until the court is satisfied that the necessity for the guardianship no longer exists.

All moneys due to the nonresident ward while the resident guardianship continues shall be paid over to the ward's foreign guardian so far as necessary or proper for the ward's support and maintenance. If the ward dies, the moneys shall be paid to the ward's ancillary administrator or other legal representative, provided that the court that appointed the resident guardian has satisfactory proof, as provided by section 2111.39 of the Revised Code, of the authority of the foreign guardian, administrator, or other legal representative to receive the moneys or properties of the nonresident ward, that the security given by the foreign guardian, administrator, or other legal representative is sufficient to protect the ward's interest or estate, and that the court considers it best for the ward or the ward's estate.
