The ABCs of GALs
This essential training provides the insight and guidance you need to serve as court-appointed guardian ad litem (GAL) for adults. Receive an overview of the process, examine new options for providing greater independence, and dive into some of the common issues that come up along the way.
Home sweet home
One of the responsibilities of a guardian ad litem is making recommendations regarding the best housing scenarios for wards in need of protective placement. Learn what it means for housing to be the “least restrictive” or “integrated” setting. Explore the options available, advantages and disadvantages, and considerations for funding and access restrictions.
Divorce, dementia, and disabilities
When disabled individuals or elderly persons with dementia get divorced, the court appoints a GAL to look out for their best interests. Hear from practitioners with both elder and family law expertise. They’ll show you how to anticipate issues, as well as recommendations you may need to make.
Give them a voice
Supported decision-making agreements provide a new way for individuals with a disability to ask for help where and when they need it. Understand how these agreements work with guardianship and where their limitations exist.
You asked. We listened.
