Revisions to form 17.0 (Application for Appointment of Guardian of Alleged Incompetent) would add additional items of information for the benefit of the probate court and the proposed ward. Revisions to forms 21.0 (Application for Change of Name of Adult) and 21.2 (Application for Change of Name of Minor) make them comply with House Bill 86. This legislation prohibited a probate court from ordering a name change if the applicant was convicted, pled guilty to, or was adjudicated a delinquent child for having committed a sexually oriented offense or a child-victim oriented offense.
