Our Downers Grove contested guardianship lawyers have written the following blog post to teach you how to file a petition for adult guardianship in Illinois.
If you'd like to petition to become the guardian of a disabled adult who is unfit to make decisions, there are certain things you need to file the petition.
You should include some of the following in the petition:
- The reason that guardianship is being sought;
- The names and addresses of any current guardian or agents appointed in the respondent’s healthcare or financial powers of attorney;
- The name and addresses of the spouse, adult children, parents, and adult siblings of the respondent. If none of these are living, then the nearest adult relatives of the respondent should be listed.
- The name address of the person or institution with which the respondent is currently residing.
- The approximate value of the respondent’s assets.
- The expected annual income of the respondent.
