N.Y. Mental Hygiene Law Section 81.26
Designation of clerk to receive process

No commission shall issue nor shall any order which in itself constitutes a commission become effective until an instrument executed and acknowledged by the guardian has been filed with the clerk of the court designating the clerk and the clerk’s successor in office as a person on whom service of any process may be made in like manner and with like effect as if it were served personally upon the guardian whenever the guardian cannot, with due diligence, be served within the state.
