Section 26-2A-108

General powers and duties of guardian.

(a) Except as limited pursuant to Section 26-2A-105(c), a guardian of an incapacitated person is responsible for health, support, education, or maintenance of the ward, but is not liable to third persons by reason of that responsibility for acts of the ward.

(b) Except as provided in Division 2A, in addition to the duties, powers, and responsibilities of a guardian described in subsection (a), a guardian of an incapacitated person has the power to limit or enforce the ward's right to visitation or communication with anyone, including the right to receive visitors, telephone calls, and personal mail.
