Adult Guardianships are handled by Department 7 of the Second Judicial District Court.
The District Court cannot give legal advice or assist the public in drafting petitions. Individuals who are proceeding without the assistance of an attorney, may contact the Self-Help Center to obtain guardianship packets that may assist in initiating or responding to a guardianship case. Self-represented litigants are responsible to familiarize themselves with law that is applicable to their case. The Self Help Center is available for public use during the following hours: 8:00am to 4:30pm; the Self Help Center is located at 1 South Sierra Street, First Floor, Reno, Nevada 89501.
Adult Guardianships are heard every Friday. Please carefully read your court documents for hearing time and location.
