MassNAELA's 4th annual Paralegal Course will provide a step-by-step look at the guardianship and conservatorship process and procedures under the Uniform Probate Code, and will preview the new probate procedures that will take effect in July 2011. The program is open to all MassNAELA attorney members and their staff. The speakers will walk attendees through the basics of the guardianship/conservatorship process, from filing the initial petition to termination. Other matters to be discussed include medical certificates, requesting Rogers authority, care and treatment plans, annual reports, accountings, and petitions for specific authority. How to expand the authority of an existing guardian and request authority for single transactions will also be covered. The upcoming changes to the estate settlement process and procedures in light of the provisions of the Uniform Probate Code scheduled to take effect in July 2011 will be reviewed in detail.
