Guardianship

The Court may consider applications for the appointment of guardians for minors and adult incompetents. An adult incompetent is one so mentally impaired that he or she is incapable of taking proper care of the person’s self or property, or to provide for the person’s family. The application must be filed in the probate court of the county in which the minor or alleged incompetent is a resident or has a legal settlement.
