Single Protective Arrangements and Single Transactions

Do you have questions about single protective arrangements and single transactions under G.S. 35A-1121?  Do you want to learn more about how they intersect with—and in some cases replace—the need for a guardian?  Have you already dealt with cases involving this new type of relationship authorized by Session Law 2021-53? Then join us for a webinar on April 5 when we will cover the basics of this new law and work through some of your pressing questions on the topic.  We will conclude the session by breaking out into professional groups for more targeted question and answer sessions.
