Except as provided in this section, no person shall accept appointment as guardian of a ward if he be acting as guardian for five wards.

In an action brought by an attorney of a Federal agency, establishing that a guardian is acting in a fiduciary capacity for more than five wards, the Superior Court shall require a final accounting forthwith from the guardian and shall discharge him.

The limitation of this section shall not apply where the guardian is a bank or trust company or a public guardian of incompetent veterans, and an individual may be guardian of more than five wards if they are all members of the same family.
