Summary:
Mental health: payment for guardians ad litem. Requires the Commonwealth to pay the costs for the appointment of guardians ad litem in cases where adult subjects of petitions of incapacitation due to impaired health are determined to be indigent. This change tracks similar language already in the Code for the appointments of guardians ad litem in cases of protective services. Current state law allows courts to assess these fees as part of court costs or, in their discretion, to waive all fees and costs.
