Guardianship

The Court Clerk's office has forms available for a Relative Guardianship of a minor only. A person wanting to file a Relative Guardianship qualifies if they are a relative within the third degree. You can not file guardianship on your own child unless the other parent is deceased.

The filing fee for a Relative Guardianship is $77.00.

The filing fee for a Non-Relative Guardianship is $201.64.

The Court Clerk's office does not have forms available for an incapacitated adult Guardianship or a Guardianship regarding a minor child that is not a relative within the third degree of the person wanting to file. You must do your own legal research or contact an attorney for these forms.

The filing fee for a Guardianship of a non-relative or a relative, whether the ward is an incapacitated adult or a minor child, that is not within the third degree of the person wanting to file the Guardianship is $201.64.
