Navigating Guardianship 1.0

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2020 (rescheduled from March 18)

This is a FREE presentation, however you MUST RSVP TO PARTICIPATE

 RSVP to Michelle at mmelanson@leagueschool.com

Have you started your child’s transitional planning at age 14?  Is your son or daughter turning 18 years old in the coming year, or aging out of special education services at 22?  In Massachusetts, all persons who are 18 years old or older are presumed competent to manage their educational choices, exercise their legal rights, give informed consent to their medical care, and manage their own money.  However, if that same person happens to have an intellectual disability, is he or she able to make those decisions independently?

Two experienced practitioners, Daryl Cameron Every, Esq. and Rachel Sletzinger, LICSW, will explain the guardianship process from start to finish and provide you with written handouts to help you decide whether guardianship is the correct route for protecting your child’s rights to proper care and services. There will be time allotted for question & answers.

If you attend, you will learn:

  • When is guardianship appropriate and necessary?
  • What types of guardianships exist?
  • Who is considered “suitable” to serve as a Court appointed guardian?
  • What are the Court required forms that must be filed, timelines that must be met, and notices that must be delivered before a Court will hear your guardianship petition?
  • Once appointed, what are a guardian’s duties?
  • Is a guardian personally liable for the disabled person’s debts?
  • What are the top 5 mistakes to avoid when seeking a guardianship?
