Product details

Used by bench and bar, this complete practice manual covers the appointment of guardians and conservators of mentally disabled individuals and children. Learn the workings of the system - all the players, rules, and documents that are necessary to do your job well. Devise strategies guided by authors who have "been there" and understand the huge demands on your time. Learn, for example, how to persuade the court regarding difficult questions such as: a person's right to die, whether to medicate for psychotic symptoms, whether to limit or expand a guardian's powers, a ward's right to vote, whether a mentally retarded woman can be sterilized, or whether a child should be removed to the custody of the DSS.
