In this article, we will explain how to start a case for guardianship of an adult in Illinois and explain medical reports in guardianship cases. We will first look at the initial filing the petitioner will make with the probate court, and then take an in-depth look at the medical report. This will include who is to prepare and sign the report, the main criteria that must be included, and how the court will scrutinize and make its decision based on the report. Finally we will discuss service of summons and what happens after the guardianship case is filed.
