What are the requirements for filing a Petition to Make Special Based on Age?


The applicant must be at least 65 years old to file the Petition to Make Special Based on Age. No fee is required with this petition. Evidence showing that the applicant meets the age requirement is no longer a requirement. However, if it is the attorney making the statement, he/she will be required to have evidence showing that the applicant is at least 65 years old, in their personal file, in case it is ever needed.
