(b) If a ward is a living resident of this state who is 14 years of age or older, and the ward's residence is known, the ward shall be cited by personal service, unless the ward, in person or by attorney, by writing filed with the clerk, waives the issuance and personal service of citation.

(c) If one who has been a ward is deceased, the ward's executor or administrator, if one has been appointed, shall be personally served, but no service is required if the executor or administrator is the same person as the guardian.

(d) If a ward's residence is unknown, or if the ward is a nonresident of this state, or if the ward is deceased and no representative of the ward's estate has been appointed and qualified in this state, the citation to the ward or to the ward's estate shall be by publication, unless the court by written order directs citation by posting.
