Guardianship of Minor

questions & answers

Question: What do I need to do to get guardianship of a 16 year old that lives with me but is originally from California?

Answer:

Due to the fact the interstate custody and guardianship matters tend to be complicated, even in terms of court jurisdiction; one may want to contact an attorney. One can locate an attorney in the state of Arizona at the Arizona Bar Association website.  Also available, on this website, are more resources regarding legal aid.  Arizona revised statutes

 A.R.S. § 8-871 and § 8-872 give the laws on whom and how a person can obtain guardianship in the state of Arizona. One can find out more information on guardianship, the process for guardianship and the necessary forms through the local Superior Court. For Maricopa County, one can view the appropriate documents on the court's website.
