The Petition is to be filed in the county in which:

  1. the Respondent (the person you believe to be incapacitated) lives when the Petition is filed, OR
  2. a will nominating the guardian was or could be probated, OR
  3. an incapacitated person is admitted to a facility pursuant to a Court order.

You can find the right court by town name by going to Where do I file?  

There are no filing fees for guardianship petitions.

There may however be a cost for service of process, and there is a fee of $20 for each certified copy of Letters of Appointment.
