GUARDIANSHIP FOR CHILDREN WITH A DISABILITY
Pursuing a guardian for a child with a disability can bring up issues that are not typical in cases where the proposed ward is elderly. This presentation will cover some of the ins and outs of pursing a guardianship of a child with a disability. What are some of the typical issues and obstacles? Who will get guardianship when the parents are divorced? Should divorced parents serve as co-guardians?
When should you start the process? Should you pursue a guardianship with limited or full powers? Should you petition for a Conservatorship at the same time? What happens if the child – or another interested party – objects? Come to find out the answer to these questions – and bring questions of your own to discuss with the group.
