Question: Can a person not a resident of Arizona be my guardian or conservator?

Answer:

For guardianship Arizona Revised Statue 14-5207

States that "Any person interested in the welfare of a minor may petition the court for appointment of a guardian."

For conservatorship Arizona Revised Statue 14-5410

States "The court may appoint an individual or a corporation"

Both of these positions require the person to disclose certain information laid out in Arizona Revised Statue 14-5106

Any one who is a resident of another state that is applying for either guardian or conservatorship should also check their local state rules, as there may be other requirements of that state.

To assist in the process of guardianship the Arizona Supreme Court has set up a website with some self help forms that can be found here.
