This program will review the process of discharging a guardian in a Mental Hygiene Law Article 81 proceeding - i.e., ending the guardianship or facilitating the appointment of a successor guardian. The course will give a practical overview of how to prepare a discharge application, governing law, how the process differs from county to county, and other court customs. The instructor will discuss the plethora of reasons a guardian (or their ward) may seek discharge of the guardian, including regaining mental capacity, death of the incapacitated person, the transfer of a ward to a nursing home when the guardian is a community guardian program, discharge for wrongdoing, and other purposes.
Presented by Daniel J. Reiter, Esq., this program will benefit article 81 guardians, and attorneys representing article 81 guardians and incapacitated persons seeking discharge of their guardian.
