The Purpose of This Handbook
- The goal of this handbook is to offer guidance for developing and presenting a vigorous defense for a client responding to a guardianship action.
- The information in this handbook may be used in a defense case to avoid the initial appointment of a guardian, or in a case to modify or terminate a guardianship.
- We thank both the Borchard Foundation Center on Law and Aging and FJC- A Foundation of Philanthropic Funds for providing funding for the development of this handbook. Without their support, this would likely have remained a good idea and not a handbook that we believe will make a real difference in defense work across the country.
