Title 29, Chapter 6, Section 5 (29-6-5)

Upon an application for the appointment of a guardian under this chapter, notice shall be given to the United States Department of Veterans Affairs Guardianship Unit and to two adult relatives of the proposed ward by certified mail or statutory overnight delivery by the clerk of the probate court unless service is acknowledged. If two adult relatives of the proposed ward cannot be located, notice to one adult relative shall be sufficient. If no adult relative can be located, the court shall give notice of the application in the newspaper in which legal advertisements of the county are published once a week for two weeks. At the next regular term after notice has been given, or after notice has been published, the letters of guardianship may, in the discretion of the court, be granted to the applicant or to some other suitable person. If all parties entitled to notice waive further notice and consent to appointment instanter, the court may, in its discretion, grant letters instanter to the applicant.
