Adult Guardianship

Guardianship is for adults who are incapacitated and lack sufficient understanding or capacity to make or communicate responsible decisions concerning his or her own well-being as a result of any of the following:

  • Physical illness or disability
  • Mental illness
  • Mental disorder
  • Mental deficiency
  • Chronic use of drugs
  • Chronic intoxication or other cause

If it is determined by the court that the adult is incapacitated, the court can appoint a guardian to act in the interests of the incapacitated person, including in the matter of obtaining needed health care, whether for physical or mental health.

Guardianship – Adult Establishment – $460
We prepare the documents, file them with the court, coordinate service, set the hearing and prepare you for the hearing.

Temporary or Emergency Petitions – $310

Some circumstances require Temporary or Emergency Orders at the time of requesting a Permanent Guardianship Order. Temporary Orders or Emergency Orders typically expire within a certain amount of time as set by the Court, if granted.

 

At what age can you begin an Adult Guardianship?

Any person needing to obtain Guardianship of a person who is who is about to turn 18 years of age may begin petitioning the Court once the child turns 17.5 years of age.

Typically, there is an investigation fee. In Maricopa County, the investigation fee is $400.
