When someone becomes mentally incompetent in Illinois (or when a Minor needs protection of his/her estate or person), oftentimes a guardianship will need to be opened in the local guardianship court. In order to begin guardianship proceedings, an interested party (usually a close family member) will need to file a petition to open a guardianship estate in the local county court. If your loved one has become mentally incapacitated (or you have a Minor needing guardianship protection) while residing in Kane County, Illinois, then he/she will need a guardianship estate to be opened in the Kane County guardianship court located in downtown Geneva, Illinois.

In Kane County, one judge (Judge Joseph Grady) handles all guardianship matters, and another judge (Judge David Akemann) handles all probate cases.
