Trial Preparation

Arizona law allows guardianship for adults unable to make responsible decisions about their own care due to one or more of the following conditions:

  • Disability or serious physical illness
  • Mental illness or psychological disorder
  • Mental deficiency
  • Chronic alcohol/drug use or other addictive behaviors

If your parent or other adult family member needs to be placed under your guardianship, we can help. Just contact us now.

Establishing adult guardianship

If a court determines that someone is incapacitated because of a qualifying condition, the judge can appoint an adult guardian to act in their best interests, which includes obtaining health care and other services. Arizona law requires special training for anyone being considered for a role as guardian.

An expert legal document preparation service can draft your petition for guardianship. The petition is filed with the court and supporting documents are prepared as needed.

The staff at an expert legal document service can also help you prepare for questions at the guardianship hearing, where you’ll be asked about the reasons for legal intervention. You should explain why you’ll be the best choice to care for your ward, the term for someone protected by a guardianship order.

Emergency guardianship for adults

If your loved one is in an especially difficult situation, such as medical crisis, physical danger, or imminent financial harm, then you might need to file an emergency petition or temporary request with the court. The court must be shown a truly urgent need to protect the ward. The judge decides if someone is incapacitated to such a degree that they can’t make their own decisions. An emergency order will typically last thirty days, giving enough time to seek a longer-term solution.

When to start the process

If you’re caring for someone about to become an adult, you can begin the guardian process when the child is 17.5 years old to make sure that treatment and other benefits aren’t lost once the child turns 18.

Cost of guardianship documents

In addition to investigative fees and filing fees, sometimes debt service is needed. You will need a legal document service to help arrange the official delivery of legal papers anywhere nationwide.
