Guardianship Workshop

Guardianship Workshop
Does Your Child Need Guardianship?
Sunday, February 24, 2013
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Ina Levine Jewish Community Campus, 12701 N. Scottsdale Road / Scottsdale, AZ
Parents of children with special needs often need to file for guardianship in order to ensure on-going communication with doctors, educators and others. This program will focus on the process of applying for and obtaining guardianship, when it is needed, how it differs from a conservatorship or when a Power of Attorney might be sufficient. This two hour workshop with forms and instructions will include a Q & A opportunity. Attorneys will be available to provide one-on-one practical information and insight into the process. Sponsored by the Council for Jews with Special Needs and Jewish Legal Aid, a Start Me Up! project.
Pre-registration is recommended. Participants who pre-register no later than February 17th are guaranteed to receive a 42-page Legal Options Manual; a limited number of additional copies may be available to walk-in participants. Pre-register at info@cjsn.org or 480-629-5343.
