If you have a client or know someone who you have identified as possibly needing a guardian, please contact our Director of Guardianship at (260) 609-3091 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the referral process prior to filling out the referral form. We will help you decide if the client meets criteria for guardianship or if there are alternatives to guardianship that may be more appropriate.
A face-to-face intake will be conducted prior to contacting the legal team about guardianship. The turnaround time for a court hearing is typically 8-12 weeks if there is not an emergency need for guardianship.
