In contrast to a case from Michigan we looked at earlier this year, in McGee v. McGee, the Indiana Court of Appeals has reaffirmed that Indiana statutes do not authorize a guardian to file a petition for dissolution of marriage on behalf of his or her ward.

While Indiana statutes allow the guardian of an incapacitated person to take action and to make decisions for the benefit of an incapacitated person, the filing of a petition for dissolution of marriage on behalf of an incapacitated person is not one of those actions or decisions.
