Are you looking for answers to the tough, complex questions that go well beyond the scope of a basic guardianship seminar? This new course is designed to address your role as the attorney who is representing the petitioner or the alleged incapacitated person (AIP), or advocating in cases where the AIP has been exploited. You’ll identify the difficult issues and get solutions on how to:
- petition for guardianship of a person suffering from mental illness
- represent an AIP whose wishes are not in his or her best interest
- deal with theft and exploitation of an AIP
Four Orphans’ Court Judges & DHS Counsel provide answers to your questions
Our experienced panelists include Orphans’ Court Judges in Bucks, Chester, Montgomery and Philadelphia County who may decide your client’s case as well as Legal Counsel from the Department of Human Services. They’ll answer these questions and more:
- What does the Orphans’ Court want to see in emergency and non-emergency petitions for guardianship?
- How much is a “reasonable” attorney’s fee?
- What is expected when theft renders an AIP ineligible for needed Medical Assistance benefits?
