Event description

Description

As part of LA Law Library’s Pro Bono Week celebration you will learn about how in California, many families struggle to care for adults who are not able to care for themselves. A conservatorship is a proceeding where a judge appoints a responsible person or organization to assist an adult with a disability with personal care or finances. This session provides general information about the court process and trains volunteers to provide one-on-one assistance in document preparation, signing, and filing.

Training covers:

  • Screening for appropriateness of probate conservatorships or available alternatives
  • Providing referrals for other types of assistance
  • Overview of conservatorship law
  • Rights of the conservatee and responsibilities of the conservator
  • Preparing petition forms and next steps for service of process and filing

Presented by:
Kathy Chew, Self-Help Conservatorship Program Director, Bet Tzedek (https://www.bettzedek.org/)
