Yes. This is generally legal for the financial officer to only forward funds of mentally incompetent patient for the direct benefit of the ward to third parties provided such benefit and if legal guardian wants to contest such decision, then a motion would have to filed with the court that has ordered legal guardianship and the judge will review request of direct disbursement of fund to the legal guardian and will make decision based on the specific facts of the case and based on the current law.
I wish you the best of luck!
Thank you for your follow up.
I cannot comment on your specific case, but generally, in a similar situation, the only option that legal guardian would have, is to file a motion with the probate court and the judge would decide on the issue.
