    Default Guardianship for Disabled Adult in Indiana

    My question involves guardianship in the State of: Indiana
    My daughter has multiple disabilities. She is now 20 years old. I am
    her representative payee for her SSI and am listed on her insurance
    as secondary contact. But I have been told if she would end up in
    the hospital or with a new doctor they could refuse to give me information
    due to the new HIPPA (privacy law). I was told to get guardianship of her.
    I do not have the resources for an attorney because I also have another
    daughter under the age of 18 with disabilities and we are receiving SSI for
    her as well. I was wanting to file guardianship without an attorney and went
    to the court house. They gave me the Self-service link but I do not see
    any forms for Adult guardianship. My daughter is not competent due to her
    mental disabilities. Can you tell me where to obtain or download the documents? Is there any guide to direct me with each step I need to take
    in gathering documentation to take with me to court. I really only want to
    be able to answer for her medical care. She does not own anything as she lives with her father and I and we have always taken care of her.
    Thanks.

    When you went to the courthouse, did you go to the probate court, or did you ask somebody in a different section of the court? They probably have standard form petitions for guardianship at the probate court. If not, they should be able to make you a copy of a file from a similar guardianship case and you can use it as a model. Unfortunately, I can't find any (free) forms online.

    Thank you for your reply. Are there forms online that cost which I would be able to use in the Harrison County court here in Indiana? I'm sure it would be cheaper to buy the forms than hiring an attorney.
    Thank you.
