  • You want to have the court make a permanent (longer than 6 months) appointment of a conservator for a person under the age of 18, AND
  • The minor lives in Maricopa County, AND
  • The parents will either sign a Voluntary Consent, OR after receiving notice of the Petition to Appoint a Conservator will not file papers or come to court to object to the appointment, AND
  • You know that you do not need the court to also or instead appoint a guardian. A minor generally needs a guardian if the minor needs the care and supervision of an adult.
You should not use the forms on this page if the following factor applies to your situation:
  • The minor is 17.5 years of age and will need a conservator as an adult but not as a minor. You may instead file papers for an appointment of conservatorship as an adult that will become effective at age 18.
These packets contain court forms and instructions about petitioning the court to appoint a permanent conservator for a minor.

Packets contain ALL forms and ALL instructions needed for this process. Where there are separate packets for Instructions and Forms, get BOTH packets.
