Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

29A-5-409Waiver of accounting requirements--Change in frequency of accountings.

The court, upon petition, may waive the requirement that accountings be filed or may permit accountings to be filed less frequently than annually if it concludes that the expense involved or burden placed on the conservator in preparing and filing annual accountings outweigh the benefit and protection afforded thereby to the minor or protected person.

In determining whether accountings may be waived or presented less frequently than annually, the court shall consider:

(1)    The relationship of the conservator to the minor or protected person;

(2)    The value of the estate and annual gross income and other receipts within the conservator's control;

(3)    The amount of the bond;

(4)    The extent to which the estate has been deposited under an arrangement requiring an order of court for its removal;

(5)    The extent to which the income and receipts are payable directly to a facility responsible for the care or custody of the minor or protected person;

(6)    Whether a guardian has been appointed, and if so, whether the guardian has filed reports as required; and

(7)    Any other factors which the court deems appropriate.

Upon the termination of a conservatorship, the court may, in addition, waive the requirement that a final accounting be filed if the individuals and entities entitled to the estate consent.
