When it comes to guardianship, people generally know about two types – an adult guardianship and a minor guardianship. However, there is a third type of guardianship which applies to a very select group of people. Individuals involved with someone who has a developmental disability have their own Letters of Guardianship form that will need to be filed with the probate court. This form is known as the Letters of Guardianship of Individual with Developmental Disability.

The Letters of Guardianship of Individual with Developmental Disability is a State Court Administrative Office form. If you need this form, please reach out to us. We will gladly provide you with this form and any other probate court forms you may need.

Most of these State Court Administrative Office forms are associated with Michigan Court Rules and statutes. This is no different. The Order Appointing Attorney is associated with MCR 5.202, which states:

A petitioner, fiduciary, or other moving party must cause to be prepared, served, and filed, a notice of hearing for all matters requiring notification of interested persons. It must state the time and date, the place, and the nature of the hearing. Hearings must be noticed for and held at times previously approved by the court.

In addition to this statute, the Letters of Guardianship of Individual with Developmental Disability is pursuant to MCR 5.402(D). To help you understand this form better, Darren Findling of The Probate Pro covers everything you’ll need to know in this video.
