This one hour webcast is meant as a foundation course for the non-elder law attorney, attorneys new to the elder law practice area interested in learning more about this important legal proceeding, or any attorney who needs a refresher.
This presentation, led by Veronica Escobar, will provide the viewer with an Article 81 Proceeding roadmap that will define incapacity, instruct on the how to's of a Guardianship petition, the evidentiary standard at hearing, as well as the hearing itself. The presenter will also touch upon post-guardianship hearing issues.
