Summary:

Adult guardianship cases are some of the most complex cases handled in civil and probate courts.  While each state differs in qualifications, processes, and monitoring requirements, there are standards that can guide your court in developing robust practices that enhance both court efficiencies and oversight.  This webinar, led by CEC Director, Dr. Brenda Uekert, is based on NACM’s Adult Guardianship Guide and provides action steps courts can take to improve guardianship practices.  Concrete examples of innovative approaches and collaborative efforts are highlighted.  Consideration is also given to the level of resources available to the court.
