A guardianship proceeding is started by filing a petition in probate court that is generally done by the person seeking to be the guardian of the ward. The ward must be served with summons and a copy of the petition. The ward may be represented by an attorney, present evidence in a trial and have a jury trial.

Letters of Office are a formal document issued by the probate court that names the guardian and it is used by the guardian when dealing with third persons as evidence of his appointment.
