When your child reaches age 18, he or she will become a legal adult, with all the rights and responsibilities that accompany adulthood. If you believe that your child lacks the capacity to take on adult responsibilities, it may be appropriate to consider petitioning for guardianship. But it’s never too early or too late to educate yourself about this process. With that goal in mind, this workshop will review the basics of guardianship—what is it? How do we know whether we need it? We will discuss the process of petitioning, and address common myths and misperceptions surrounding this complex topic.
