Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

A guardian, conservator or like fiduciary appointed in another state may be appointed as a guardian or conservator in this state upon presentation of a petition therefor, proof of appointment, and a certified copy of such portion of the court record in the other state as the court in this state may specify. Notice of hearing on any such petition, together with a copy of the petition, shall be mailed at least fourteen days prior to the hearing to the minor, if age ten or older, to the protected person, and to the individuals and entities that would be entitled to notice if the regular procedures for appointment of a guardian or conservator were applicable. The court shall make the appointment unless it concludes that the appointment would not be in the minor's or protected person's best interest. Upon the filing of an acceptance of office and any required bond, the appropriate letters of guardianship or conservatorship shall issue. Within fourteen days following an appointment, the guardian or conservator shall mail a copy of the order of appointment to the minor, if age ten or older, to the protected person, and to all individuals and entities given notice of the petition. The mailing made to and on behalf of the protected person shall include a brief statement of rights to seek termination or modification.
