ESTATE PLANNING and ADMINISTRATION
Thank you to the Estate Planning and Administration Committee for holding a roundtable discussion on professional goals for 2017.
ELDER LAW, CONSERVATORSHIPS and GUARDIANSHIPS
Wednesday, January 18, 12:00 - 1:30 p.m. at Wendel, Rosen, Black & Dean LLP, 1111 Broadway, 19th Floor, Oakland.
Join the Elder Law, Conservatorships & Guardianships Committee for a roundtable discussion on new laws and a review of recently enacted legislation affecting this practice area, including the following: The California Conservatorship Jurisdiction Act (CCJA) which is operative January 1, 2016, covers three specific areas regarding jurisdictional issues which may arise when conservatees change locations/states. [Probate Code §§1980-2033]. The CCJA focuses on jurisdiction issues that come up when conservatees are on the move: (1) Determining jurisdiction for establishing conservatorships, (2) Transferring existing conservatorships, (3) Registration and recognition of sister-state conservatorships; and the Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act, which allows people with disabilities to open special accounts where they can save without risking eligibility for Social Security and other government programs. Come with your questions and any other topics you wish to discuss.
RSVP REQUIRED BY 10AM JANUARY 15. Email to admin@EBTEL.org with “January 18 Brown Bag RSVP” in the Subject line.
