  1. Fill out the forms. These can be printed out from this website. Fill them out (type them or use dark ink). Forms are available at Probate Court 5th Floor, Hall of Justice.
  2. Make sure your forms are completely filled out.
    • Did you sign all of them?
    • Are all the interested persons listed, along with their addresses?
    • You may wish to get a waiver and consent form signed by each interested party. Getting these forms may make it easier to start your case. As the guardians, you cannot sign a waiver.
