Guardianship Workshop - Feb. 24, 2013

Sunday February 24, 2013 from 1 - 3 p.m.
Ina Levine Jewish Community Campus
12701 N. Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale, AZ
Guardianship Workshop

Learn about guardianship, conservatorship and powers of attorney in plain English—when to think about these issues, why the topics might be important and how to proceed.  When a person turns 18, they are legal adults regardless of his/her actual ability to make decisions regarding health care, housing and education.  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. 

This program is 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 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 or 480-629-5343.
