Webinar: Monitoring Guardianships & Conservatorships: A Guide for Courts and Clerks

January 25th, 2023

The court’s duty to protect the well-being of an individual does not end when it appoints a guardian or conservator.

During this webinar, you will learn about NCSC's new well-being and accounting report review protocols.

With a monitoring protocol, courts can identify guardians who are struggling, guide a guardian who needs assistance in fulfilling their duties, and the court can stop a guardian from using their court-appointed authority to abuse, neglect, or exploit an individual.
