Court Visitor Program

Oregon State Law requires the court to appoint a “visitor” when a petition is filed in a protective proceeding which seeks the appointment of a guardian (See ORS 125.150).  The role of the visitor is to interview persons who are familiar with the circumstances of the alleged incapacitated person for whom the appointment of a guardian has been requested, including interviewing the alleged incapacitated person, and provide a report to the court which includes factual findings and a recommendation regarding the appropriateness of the requested guardianship.

Persons interested in serving as a Court visitor should review the above referenced statute and the two documents below.  Court visitors are compensated for their service.
