How is a guardianship proceeding initiated?

Well, typically it’s going to depend on what type of guardianship proceeding you’re seeking to establish, but generally I can tell you there’s going to be about three things you need to file with the court. One, you’re going to need to file your petition for guardianship, and that’s just you telling the court what type of guardianship you’re seeking to establish. Two, you’re going to need to file your oath, and that’s just you letting the court know you will faithfully perform your duties as a guardian. The last document you’ll need to submit is an application for guardianship.
