How is a guardianship proceeding initiated?

Question: How is a guardianship proceeding initiated?

Answer: A guardianship proceeding is initiated by a petition that is filed by an individual who feels that there is a need for your competency to be questioned and the need to have a guardian to be appointed on your behalf. Typically that may be a family member or close friend who sees that something is going on that requires attention and that they are trying to act in your best interest and that the probate court will then make a determination as to whether or not their observations are accurate or whether or not a guardian needs to be appointed on your behalf.
