(755 ILCS 5/11a-13.5)
    Sec. 11a-13.5. Guardian fees. A guardian is entitled to reasonable and appropriate compensation for services related to guardianship duties, but all fees must be reviewed and approved by the court pursuant to a fee petition. In considering the reasonableness of any fee petition brought by a guardian under this Section, the court shall consider the following:
        (1) the powers and duties assigned to the guardian
by the court;
        (2) the necessity of any services provided;
        (3) the time required, the degree of difficulty,
and the experience needed to complete the task;
        (4) the needs of the ward and the costs of
alternatives; and
        (5) other facts and circumstances material to the
best interests of the ward or his or her estate.
    Upon the death of the ward, fees and costs awarded under this Section shall be considered as a first-class claim for administrative expenses as set forth in Section 18-10 and may be paid from the guardianship estate or from the decedent's estate.
