Free Webcast: Using Alternatives to Guardianship to Defend Against or Terminate Guardianship

When: Wednesday, December 15, 2021, at 11:30-12:30 P.T./2:30-3:30 E.T.

A guardianship should be a last resort, only to be imposed when alternatives fail to fill the needs of the person. Often, petitions for guardianship are filed and adjudicated without exploring alternatives. A winning strategy for the defense against guardianship or for restoration of rights is to develop and present evidence that alternatives meet the needs of the person. This training will explore case scenarios and discuss how evidence of alternatives can be developed and presented in court.

Attendees who are unfamiliar with alternatives to guardianship are encouraged to review our past resources on Overview of Guardianship & Alternatives to Guardianship and Role of Decision Supports in Elder Abuse Prevention and Recovery.
