Guard & Protect (GAP) Act Forms

In an effort to Guard and Protect Mississippi's vulnerable children and adults, the Mississippi legislature passed the Mississippi GAP Act; a solution which corresponds with existing court rules and ensures that Mississippians Guard and Protect those who cannot adequately defend themselves.

Following the general provisions of the Act, any person including a chancellor, clerk, relative or friend interested in the welfare of a minor or adult may petition the court for appointment of a guardian/conservator.
