Petition for Appointment of Guardian

Petition for Appointment of Guardian

A Petition for Appointment of Guardian is a legal document used when a person is unable to take care of themselves or their affairs due to a physical or mental disability. The petition must be filed in the county court where the person lives, and it must be completed by the petitioner, who is the person filing the petition. The petition must include the name and address of the person for whom the guardianship is sought, as well as the name, address, and relationship of the petitioner. It must also include a description of the person's disability, and the type of guardianship requested.


Guardianship legal forms

Guardianship is a legal relationship created when a person or institution named in a will or appointed by the court to take care of minor children or incompetent adults, sometimes called a conservatorship. To become a guardian of the child or the party that intends to be a guardian or other family member, close friend or a local official responsible for the welfare of a minor will appeal to the court to appoint a guardian. Guardianship of minors remains under court supervision until the child reaches the age of 18.
