Each guardian is expected to answer all questions honestly. On the last page you are required to sign the form and declare, under penalty of perjury, that all the information you have provided is true and correct. When completing this form please keep in mind that the term "proposed guardian" refers to the person who wants to become the guardian. The term "proposed ward" or "ward" refers to the child you are asking to become the guardian for. The term "petitioner" refers to the person who signed the petition asking the court to appoint a guardian. If you are asking to be appointed solely as guardian of the estate, a telephone interview will be conducted by the court investigator. You only need to fill out Section I and V only. The cost of the investigation is $150.00. If you are asking to be appointed as guardian of the person (or person and estate), a home visit is required.

It is currently $625.00 and can be paid from the estate of the ward, if there is one, or by the proposed guardian or the parents.
