Attention bannerCHANGES TO MINOR GUARDIANSHIPS AND NON-PARENTAL CUSTODY CASES

Beginning January 4, 2021, RCW 11.130 ARTICLE 2 (sections .185-.260) takes effect.  If you wish to file a NEW action seeking to appoint a guardian for a minor, you MUST follow the provisions outlined in RCW 11.130.   Any current cases pending under RCW 26.10 (Non-Parental Custody actions), MAY still be finalized in those open case files through January, 2021.  If they are not finalized prior to January 31, 2021, a new action must be started under the new statute.  This is pending any further extensions the Washington State Legislature may grant.

Minor guardianship forms can be located on the Administrative Office of the Courts website: Washington State Courts - Court Forms - Minor Guardianship.
