GUARDIANSHIP CITATION. This form is used in the Surrogate's Court of Kings County in the state of New York. It is issued by the court to notify an individual (the respondent) about a petition that has been filed for the appointment of a guardian for a specific individual (the ward) who is under the age of 18. The citation requests the respondent to appear before the Surrogate's Court, either in person or via virtual videoconference, on a specified date and time. The respondent is required to show cause why a decree (court order) should not be issued appointing the petitioner as the guardian of the person, property, or both, of the named infant. The form provides options for the type of guardianship being sought: guardian of the person, guardian of the property, or guardian of both the person and property. The petitioner's name and address are included in the citation. Additionally, the form includes a notice indicating that in-person appearances are encouraged on the return date of the citation, but virtual appearances via video conference are also accommodated. The notice provides instructions for accessing the video conference and states that if the respondent fails to respond in writing, it will be assumed that they do not object to the relief requested.
