(2) Notice shall be served personally on the alleged incapacitated person. In all other cases, required notices shall be given as provided in section 15-1-401, Idaho Code. Waiver of notice by the person alleged to be incapacitated is not effective unless he attends the hearing or his waiver of notice is confirmed by the visitor or the guardian ad litem. Representation of the alleged incapacitated person by a guardian ad litem is not necessary.
(3) Any person desiring notice of any order or filing in a proceeding involving an alleged incapacitated person in whom he is interested may file a request for notice with the court stating his name, the name of the incapacitated person, the nature of the requesting person’s interest, and address or that of his attorney. Upon payment of any fee required by statute or court rule, the clerk shall mail a copy of the request to the guardian if one has been appointed or to the petitioner if there is no guardian. A request is effective only as to matters occurring after its filing.
