Supporting Guardians In Phoenix And Throughout Arizona

Agreeing to act as a guardian of a vulnerable adult or child can be a noble thing. Your willingness to care for your ward does come with great responsibility, however, and a requirement to address a number of legal issues. In addition to making decisions on your ward’s care and best interests, you are also responsible for filing an annual guardianship report with the court. In this report, you must complete a document providing a wide range of information and may be required to offer more detail during a hearing to evaluate the effectiveness of guardianship.

At Gorman Law Group, PLC, we understand that guardianship reports can be complicated and confusing to address. We also understand how important completing an accurate and comprehensive guardianship report can be to demonstrate the effectiveness of guardianship to the court. Our Phoenix guardianship reports attorneys offer detailed support on the proper completion of all required documents, and will appear with you in any required reporting hearings.

To help you complete the most detailed guardianship report possible, we work with you to understand the many questions on the required document and how each relates to your specific situation. Common questions found on the guardianship report include:

  • Describe the ward’s residential situation
  • Are you comfortable with the care provided to the ward?
  • Describe any conditions the ward has experienced in the last year
  • What is the ward’s current health status?
  • Has the ward experienced any significant changes in health status or mental ability in the last year?
  • Do you believe the ward continues to require a guardian?

Each of these questions, and others, are designed to help the court access the effectiveness and future necessity of your guardianship arrangement. The guardianship report is also helpful in keeping other family members and interested parties up to date on the ward’s condition and developments in the ward’s life.
