Pro Se Adult Guardianship Help Desk at the Daley Center Courthouse

CDEL's Help Desk is Currently Closed Due to COVID-19 Precautions.  You can apply for a remote appointment on ILAO.

CDEL representatives assist the public in completing the necessary paperwork for filing petitions for adult guardianship of the person. The petitioners will represent themselves throughout the guardianship process but CDEL will provide guidance in completing the forms and tasks needed to be finalized for presentation of the petition to the court.

The Help Desk is open from 9 am to 1 pm every day the court is in session inside the 12th Floor Probate Clerk’s Office at the Daley Center, 50 West Washington, Chicago.  No appointment is necessary but we recommend arriving by 10:30 am.  Petitioners should bring a valid ID and a phone with which to access email for filing.
