2014 Guardian ad Litem Training Program – Footnote #18

In the Estate accounting which was the subject of Exhibit G, I was concerned that the Petitioner had not exercised due diligence in trying to locate unknown interested parties.  Before filing my Guardian’s Report, I expressed my concern to Petitioner.  He then did an internet search of persons in New York State with the same last name as decedent (which was not a common name).  He had 5 possible “hits,” one of which turned out to be a relative of decedent and a necessary party to the proceeding.
