Filing a petition with the AZ Superior Court is the first step in the guardianship process. After paying a filing fee, a hearing will be scheduled. Prior to the hearing date, however, individuals are required to fill out all necessary forms. In certain cases, individuals are required to have certified copies of the Letters of Guardianship. While these forms are all found online, it is advised that individuals consult an experienced Arizona family law lawyer before proceeding to apply.
At the hearing, the judge will determine whether procedural requirements have been met, the guardian’s appointment is appropriate, and that the proposed guardian is the best available choice for the minor. If properly executed, most minor guardianship proceedings are uncontested and resolved at the first hearing. Consulting Simon Law Group guarantees that your case will be the strongest it can be.
