questions & answers

Question: our daughter is 25 yrs of age, she's permanently disabled, the dept of DDD has asked us if we are legal guardians for her, we have a conservative ship superior court order from the state of California, but we have been told that is not recognized in Arizona, so we have elected to file for a guardianship of her in this state since we reside here permanently. I'm permanently disabled as well and on fixed income which means I can't afford legal fees anymore. We need help filing our documents with the courts with all the necessary paper work the first time minimizing travel for health reasons

Answer: You may be able to handle the guardianship on your own by using the court's self-service center.  Go to the court's website, click on the self-service center, and click on the probate section.  There, you will find all the forms and instructions you need to file for the guardianship of an adult. The court's website is http://www.azcourts.gov You can also apply for free legal help on this website.  Go to http://www.azlawhelp.org/accesstojustice.cfm.
