Join us for the webinar, Judicial Guardianship Evaluation Toolkit. Judges who preside over guardianship cases are required to make determinations of capacity and to decide whether a guardianship is necessary to protect individuals who are unable to make decisions on their own behalf. Developed for judges by judges in 22 states, the new Guardianship Evaluation Toolkit is a 2-page fillable and printable PDF containing a checklist of relevant factors designed to aid judges in integrating information from multiple sources. The tool also helps judges weigh potential risk factors for abuse in guardianships.
As one judge said, "Frankly, it just made me feel more comfortable with my own decisions in those cases, because sometimes later you think, 'Oh, I should have been considering, I wonder what would've happened if,’ and with this one [case with worksheet] you don’t. You pretty much know you considered everything you were supposed to consider and it's all right there."
