Massachusetts Probate and Family Court Standing Order 3-09: Notice in Guardianship of Incapacitated Persons and Conservatorship Matters
In all Guardianship of incapacitated person and Conservatorship matters, notice pursuant to G.L. c. 190B, § 1-401 (c) will be presumed insufficient unless:
1). Proof of mailing is provided for all notice given by first-class mail; and
2.) Proof of publication is provided for all cases where there are interested persons whose address or identity is not known or cannot be ascertained with reasonable diligence.
This Standing Order does not preclude the Court from requiring additional proof of notice as the case requires.
Effective July 1, 2009.
