What are back fees and how are they billed and paid for?

For various reasons, some guardians will have fees that are approved by the court but there was not sufficient participation at the time to pay them. These unpaid fees can be held over until additional participation is available. When participation becomes available, it is reduced an additional amount over and above the monthly guardianship fees and costs to cover that amount. Back fees are only paid if the Regional Administrator received proper notice at the time the court initially approved the fees.
