This basic training will focus on how to bring a Petition for the Guardianship of an Adult in the Probate Court. The training will address guardianship of incapacitated persons that are unable to make or communicate decisions due to a medically diagnosed condition. The training will include instruction on how to complete the petition and accompanying pleadings, waive fees and costs, obtain a medical certificate or clinical team report from the incapacitated person's health care providers, and how to handle issues of service and the bond. This is an excellent area of practice for new attorneys as well as an additional area of practice for attorneys experienced in other areas of law, but unfamiliar with the guardianship practice.
