    Product Description


    This program presents an essential analysis and in-depth discussion of the many components inherent in Category E & F guardian ad litem appointments and their practical applications for guardians ad litem and attorneys, including how to interpret the order of appointment; what type of intake/questionnaire forms could or should be used; how bias can play a role throughout a GAL appointment; what makes a useful GAL report; and waiver of privilege from the view of the guardian and the view of the Category E/F GAL. Practice tips are offered by seasoned Category E and F GALs and Probate and Family Court Judges and staff. A representative from the Administrative Office of the Probate and Family Court (AOPFC) will answer the most frequently asked questions from guardians ad litem. 

    For Current Category E and Category F List Members: If you are currently on the Probate and Family Court's Category E or Category F Fee-Generating Appointment List, you are required to take the yearly CLE as set forth by the AOPFC. The live webcast, the recorded webcast, and the on-demand webcast of this program all fulfill the requirement to remain on the list for 2023, as long as you complete the required prompts and submit the required documentation to pandf.feegenerating@jud.state.ma.us. 

    Note: To obtain continuing education credits to meet your requirements to stay on the Category E or Category F list for 2023, you must choose the "Prompts" option when you click the link to begin the live webcast, the recorded webcast, and the on-demand webcast and click all prompts as they appear during the program.
