How do I become a guardian or conservator?

A desire to assist a vulnerable person, followed by a legal consultation may be your first steps. A petition is then filed with the Court. Completing a background check and online training (to become familiar with the rules of guardianship and conservatorship) are not optional, and will be ordered by the presiding Judge in your case. For more information contact the Guardianship and Conservatorship Monitor at 208-446-2147.
