ON DEMAND: MCLE: Volunteer Training: Establishing Guardianships

Class recorded October 26, 2021

Unfortunately, many caregivers do not know how to obtain the legal guardianship necessary to adequately provide for children in their care so they can make decisions about their education, medical needs and living arrangements. If a legal guardianship is not established, these children are at significant risk of becoming part of the foster care system because there may be no other way to ensure that their basic needs are met.

Would you like to be part of the solution? This class will teach you how to help establish probate guardianships for minors whose parents can’t or won’t care for them and how to participate as a volunteer in a pro bono clinic helping complete the necessary court forms.
