Part 7 of 10 Estates, Trusts and Probate Law Series: Where Does My Ward Legally Reside? Initial Jurisdiction and How to Transfer Intervention Cases

Date & Time: Thursday, March 20, 2014 from 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm

CLE Credit: No

Event Description
Since 2008, the Uniform Adult Guardianship and Protective Proceedings Jurisdiction Act, D.C. Code Sec. 21-2401.01, et seq., has governed whether the Superior Court has jurisdiction of a ward or potential ward based on different factors.

Guardianship proceedings can also be transferred from the District to another state and transferred into the District from another state pursuant to the provisions in this law.

The panel will discuss the procedures to follow to transfer guardianship cases to and from the District. The concepts of “home state” and “significant connection” will be addressed. The panel will also discuss the law's provision for “special jurisdiction” to have a temporary guardian appointed for a non-resident.

This luncheon program is sponsored by the Estates, Trusts & Probates Law Section.
