To answer the first part of your question, a guardianship proceeding would be filed in the county where the alleged disabled person lives. Adult children should receive notice of any guardianship proceedings for their parent(s). You could contact the clerk of the circuit court for that county and/or look online to see what proceedings, if any, have been filed.
