The Guardianship Process in Texas

Guardianship is a complicated process with many steps.  An experienced guardianship attorney will help guide you through the steps.

Guardianship Application

The guardianship process begins with filing an application in the probate court of the county in which the proposed ward lives. Notice of the application must be provided to the proposed ward, the proposed ward's parents, the proposed guardian, and, if applicable, the proposed ward's spouse and any person actually caring for or having control of the proposed ward. If the proposed ward is under the age of eighteen, you cannot file an application more than 180 days before the proposed ward's eighteenth birthday. If the hearing is before the proposed ward turns 18, the guardianship does not take effect until the ward is 18 years old.
