Guardianship and Conservatorship: Essentials of and What to Avoid

 

Gain a better understanding of the how to represent clients in a guardianship or conservatorship matter.

Many practitioners are not familiar with the probate court and do not know how to effectively represent their client in a guardianship or conservatorship matter. They also do not understand what the probate court judges are looking for when determining whether to appoint a guardian and conservator and who should be appointed as guardian or conservator for the ward. This information helps the attorney understand the probate process, pleadings and what the judges need to know in order to appoint a guardian or conservator. The information also explains the relevant statutes, the priority of appointment and how to manage contested hearings. Failing to properly understand the probate court process for guardianships and conservatorships can cause the attorney to have a bad result for their client. This material is critical for attorneys practicing in the probate court and filing petitions for guardianship and conservatorship. This information will give the attorney a sound foundation and understanding of the probate process for guardianship and conservatorships and give instructions on how to handle contested guardianships and conservatorships.
