I printed the forms that you told me to. But, I called the Civil Supreme Court (Guardingship for Adults) she said that there is no paper work except for the Article 81 procceding or Petition Order to Show Cause.
Is the Article 81 or Petition Order to Show Cause hard to write or to follow?
she has a bipolar and schizoprenic disorder.
She refuses to take her pills, and had to be taken to the hospital by the police several times. We need guardianship so that we can get her better help.
She got sick with bipolar/schizophrenia when she was 37 years old.
Is article 81 difficult to obtain and follow. We really don't have any funds to be paying lawyers.
