  • Description

    Life is full of the unexpected. And while it would seem impossible to plan for all contingencies, we can certainly plan for some. This CLE course will offer attorneys guidelines to assist clients in preparing for the unexpected such as with health care proxies, wills, and ultimate power of attorneys (POA). The course will explain the consequences of neglecting to put these measures in place, including the need for guardianship petitions. The course will extend the discussion to determining the type of guardianship in such instances.
