Guardianship of Minor

questions & answers

Question: My mother lives in Phoenix and has Title 14 Guardianship of our 6 year old nephew. She wants to transfer it to us in Texas. The child's mother agrees with the plan and will give consent. I believe ARS 8-874 applies here. Where do we find the paperwork to motion for appointment of a successor and affidavit (assuming this is the correct path to take).

Answer: Many of the forms related to guardianships of a minor can be located in the Self-Service Center of the superior court in your county. For example, the Maricopa County Superior Court makes certain forms for petitioning for guardianship of a minor or terminating guardianship of a minor available under the Juvenile Cases section of the Self-Service Center. http://www.superiorcourt.maricopa.gov/SuperiorCourt/Self-ServiceCenter/Forms/JuvenileCases/ Additional information and guidance about appropriate forms can be provided by the clerk of the court for your county. It is important to remember that, while many legal actions can be taken without the aid of an attorney, some issues are complicated and difficult to manage. Only an attorney licensed to practice in Arizona can provide legal advice related to a specific case.
