FW-001-GC Request to Waive Court Fees (Ward or Conservatee)



Please read “Waiver of Court Fees” in the general Conservatorship webpage as it will give you more information on understanding fee waiver.
I would take a cursory look at the Request to Waive Court Fees to make sure that your (proposed) conservatee may qualify before filling out the form and filing.

The Califorina Courts has a self-help webpage on fee waiver. http://www.courts.ca.gov/selfhelp-feewaiver.htm

Form Links

Filled in Example FW-001-GC Form

Filled in Example MC-025 Form

- You can edit it to your situation print, and file it at your local California Superior Court. The form is the same as the one you can get from a California Superior Court Website.

The “heading” on form FW-001-GC is different than the other conservatorship forms. Note the case name box “Conservatorship of” name of conservatee.

5. State that your 18 year old is a high school student.

6. You really only have to check Superior Court. It is doubtful full your conservatee will need to go to other courts in the future, but you can always refile for a fee waiver then.

FW-001-INFO can be found here: http://www.courts.ca.gov/documents/fw001info.pdf

It is also included on this webpage here: FW-001-INFO in html form so that it can be translated into other languages.

Page 3 Notes:

11. Make sure you check “Person only, no estate” box.

13. Check the boxes correct to your situation.

I check b. in the example to give an example of form MC-025. A first party trust counts as part of a (proposed) conservatee’s estate. A third part “Special Needs Trust” does not count as a (proposed) conservatee’s estate.

fw-001-gc page 4

Page 4 Notes:

Most of this page will probably be blank for an 18 year old adult child with autism that needs to be conserved. The form is written to include senior citizens or adults that become disabled enough to need to be conserved.

On this form you do not include any parent, guardian or conservator’s income or property. You only enter income or expenses that are directly under the (proposed) conservatee.

15. If your adult child receives social security SSI you would add that here.

18. Estimate various monthly expense amounts even if you the parent(s) pays for them out of your pocket.

MC-025 Form

mc-025

Page 1 Notes:

This is an example of stating a trust which is a third party “Special Needs Trust”. It includes the Trustee names, the declaration of the “Special Needs Trust”, if the ward has received any distribution (which is probably not necessary) and current value.

Trusts that are not third party will likely result in the fee waiver being denied.

Make sure to fill in attachment number at the top of the form and page numbers at the bottom of the form.

 Request to Waive Court Fees
 (Ward or Conservatee)
CONFIDENTIAL

This form must be used by a guardian or conservator, or by a petitioner for the appointment of a guardian or conservator, to request a waiver of court fees in the guardianship or conservatorship court proceeding or in any other civil action in which the guardian or conservator represents the interests of the ward or conservatee as a plaintiff or defendant.

 CASE NUMBER:
 PCN-16-123456
 Case Name
 Conservatorship of Terry Morgan Doe

If the ward or conservatee (including a proposed ward or conservatee if a petition for appointment of a guardian or conservator has been filed but has not yet been decided by the court) directly receives public benefits or is supported by public benefits received by another for his or her support, is a low-income person, or does not have enough income to pay for his or her household’s basic needs and the court fees, you may use this form to ask the court to waive the court fees. The court may order you to answer questions about the finances of the ward or conservatee. If the court waives the fees, the ward or conservatee, his or her estate, or someone with a duty to support the ward or conservatee, may still have to pay later if:
• You cannot give the court proof of the ward’s or conservatee’s eligibility,
• The ward’s or conservatee’s financial situation improves during this case, or
• You settle the civil case on behalf of the ward or conservatee for $10,000 or more. The trial court that waives fees will have a lien on any such
settlement in the amount of the waived fees and costs. The court may also charge the ward or conservatee, or his or her estate, any collection costs.

• If you receive a fee waiver, you must tell the court if there is a change in your finances, or the finances of your ward or conservatee. You must tell the court within five days if those finances improve or if you, or your ward or conservatee, become able to pay court fees or costs during this case. (File Notice to Court of Improved Financial Situation or Settlement (form FW-010) or Notice to Court of Improved Financial Situation or Settlement (Ward or Conservatee) (form FW-010-GC) with the court.) You may be ordered to repay any amounts that were waived after your eligibility, or the eligibility of your ward or conservatee, came to an end.

• If you receive a judgment or support order in a family law matter: You may be ordered to pay all or part of your waived fees and costs if the court finds your circumstances have changed so that you can afford to pay. You will have the opportunity to ask the court for a hearing if the court makes such a decision.

• If you win your case in the trial court: In most circumstances the other side will be ordered to pay your waived fees and costs to the court. The court will not enter a satisfaction of judgment until the court is paid. (This does not apply in unlawful detainer cases. Special rules apply in family law cases and in guardianships and conservatorships. (Government Code, section 68637(d), (e), and Cal. Rules of Court, rule 7.5.)

• If you settle your civil case for $10,000 or more: Any trial court waived fees and costs must first be paid to the court out of the settlement. The court will have a lien on the settlement in the amount of the waived fees and costs. The court may refuse to dismiss the case until the lien is satisfied. A request to dismiss the case (use form CIV-110) must have a declaration under penalty of perjury that the waived fees and costs have been paid. Special rules apply to family law cases.

• The court can collect fees and costs due to the court. If waived fees and costs are ordered paid to the trial court, or if you fail to make the payments over time, the court can start collection proceedings and add a $25 fee plus any additional costs of collection to the other fees and costs owed to the court.

• The fee waiver ends. The fee waiver expires 60 days after the judgment, dismissal, or other final disposition of the case or earlier if a court finds that you or your ward or conservatee are not eligible for a fee waiver. If the case is a guardianship or conservatorship proceeding, see California Ru les of Court, rule 7.5(k) for information on the final disposition of that matter.

• If you are in jail or state prison: Prisoners may be required to pay the full cost of the filing fee in the trial court but may be allowed to do so over time. See Government Code section 68635.
