Family – guardianship — protective placement — competency

Daniel L.C. appeals orders appointing a guardian and placing him under protective placement. The issue is whether the circuit court lost competency to proceed because there was no proper waiver of Daniel’s appearance at the hearing. We reverse the protective placement order because there was no proper waiver and the lack thereof caused the circuit court to lose competency. We affirm, however, the guardianship order because the applicable statute does not include the same requirements. This opinion will not be published.
