Meaningful Consideration of Less Restrictive Alternatives to Guardianship Under Session Law 2023-124

Recent changes to North Carolina’s guardianship laws make clear that an adult or emancipated minor does not lack capacity (and is therefore not incompetent) if a less restrictive alternative to guardianship enables them to manage their affairs and make and communicate important decisions about themselves and their property. This webinar will discuss these recent changes, identify examples of less restrictive alternatives, facilitate participant generated ideas for implementing these alternatives, identify open questions and anticipated challenges, and highlight how these changes impact the duties of clerks and guardian ad litem attorneys.

This webinar was held on December 14, 2023.  The recording can be viewed at no cost for educational purposes here.
