BET TZEDEK’S SELF-HELP

CONSERVATORSHIP AND ELDER ABUSE RESTRAINING ORDER

COURT-BASED CLINICS

“I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it,” you tell yourself.

But when the inevitable arrives – a parent’s Alzheimer’s worsens, or a developmentally disabled child turns 18 – the challenges can be daunting. Your loved ones must make their own legal, financial, and medical decisions, but are in no condition to do so.

Bet Tzedek holds self-help clinics for individuals seeking conservatorships for family members and friends. You can gain the legal right to make important choices for those close to you – and we can show you how.

And what about those who rely on the care of others – but are being mistreated? We also assist elderly and dependent adult victims of abuse file elder abuse restraining orders.

At our self-help clinics, Bet Tzedek’s staff and volunteers can assist you with:

  • applying for temporary restraining orders
  • filing for conservatorships
  • obtaining information about the court process
  • understanding alternatives to conservatorships
  • correcting problems in pending petitions
  • preparing fee waiver applications
  • preparing bond and accounting waiver applications

Anybody who is not represented by an attorney may be helped on all conservatorships of the person and on a case-by-case basis for conservatorship of the estate – if the person you believe needs a conservatorship has limited assets and income.

Please review this checklist for the information you will need to bring with you to the clinic.

INDIVIDUALS ARE ASSISTED ON A FIRST-COME, FIRST SERVED BASIS.
