2014 Guardian ad Litem Training Program – Footnote #20

In a meeting with one of my wards I realized that, although distorted by his bipolar condition, my ward had a good grasp of the circumstances of the accounting proceeding. He had very strong opinions about the proceeding. After obtaining permission from the Court I had my ward attend a court calendar call, where he was given the opportunity to express his concerns directly to the Court. I thought this to be important, so that he wouldn’t have the feeling that his concerns had been disregarded. Although the proceeding has long been over, he calls me every few months to discuss his concerns as to what will happen when his mother dies, and recently told me how pleased he was with my representation of him in the probate proceeding, and in my continuing communications with him.
