DuPage County Guardianship

In Illinois, a guardianship proceeding is handled in the county of a disabled or minor person's current residence. And if that residence is located in DuPage County, then the guardianship case will need to be handled by the DuPage County guardianship court located in Wheaton, Illinois.


DuPage County Guardianship Court


In the DuPage County guardianship court, there is currently one judge who hears all guardianship cases for the entire county. The guardianship call for routine guardianship matters is heard Monday through Friday at 9:00 a.m. in Courtroom 2009 of the DuPage County Judicial Center located at 505 N. County Farm Road, Wheaton, Illinois. Contested guardianship matters are heard in the late mornings and early afternoons during the week. 


How do I know for sure if DuPage County is the right county for my loved one's guardianship estate?


If your loved one's primary residence is in DuPage County, and he/she will continue to reside in DuPage County for the foreseeable future, then the Court will presume that DuPage County is the county of domicile for the guardianship proceedings. This is true even if your loved one has an interest in real estate or other property in another county, state, or country.


How long does a guardianship take to set up in DuPage County, Illinois?


In DuPage County, a typical routine guardianship case can be set up in 1 - 2 months, depending on the type of guardianship case and what needs to be done to complete the opening of the case. However, if there are circumstances that complicate the opening of the guardianship (such as guardianship litigation), then it could potentially take much longer.
