Parental Appointment

Forms for this type of guardianship are not available through the Court. You may review the statute to determine the requirements for making a parental appointment.

Once a parental appointment has been established, the guardian must file with the Court the parental appointment with a filing fee of $150, an acceptance of appointment (PC 571) (PDF).

Upon filing of these documents by the guardian, the Court will send the guardian a "Notice of Duties". In addition to other duties as stated in the statute, the guardian will be required to file an Annual Report of Guardian yearly on the anniversary of the appointment. Please see the instructions for the Annual Reporting.
