How do I apply for Conservatorship in Detroit Michigan?

How do I apply for Conservatorship in Detroit Michigan?

Hello and welcome,

I have reviewed the state court forms and located a form published by the courts that can be used to petition the local court for conservatorship.

It is called a Petition for Appointment of Conservator and/or Protective Order and here is a link to that form and others from the courts' website:

http://courts.mi.gov/Administration/SCAO/Forms/Pages/Guardian-and-Conservator.aspx?Paged=TRUE&p_Title=Order%20%28general%29&p_ID=1004&PageFirstRow=31&&View={7F11B0A1-77B5-4199-B384-5E411B2AFDEE}

A hearing will normally be set in the matter and it must be determined that the individual is in need of the appointment, usually due to incapacity.

I hope this helps clarify the situation for you.

I found the form and scanned it quickly. Once I fill it out I don't see what or where to send it. What do I do with it?

Hello again, Debra.

Where is the location of the individual for whom you are seeking conservatorship? What area of Detroit?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.


Its my brother in a nursing home Schaefer/7mile area in Wayne county.

I see.

Here is a link to the Wayne County courts. The conservatorship should normally be filed in the probate court:

http://www.waynecounty.com/3577.htm

You can contact the clerk of that court to see how many copies of the petition they need, the filing fee, and any additional instructions they may have for you.


I hope this helps clarify the situation for you.

So use the form from the first link you gave me then contact the appropriate Wayne County court from the second link you gave me?

Yes, I would contact the court first and ask for any special instructions, but that is the form you would typically use to petition for conservatorship.

I hope this helps clarify the situation for you.
