What to Expect in Guardianship Mediation
Guardianship mediation is a process that can help families come to an agreement about legal guardianship for a minor or adult. In guardianship mediation, both parties are encouraged to come to a mutually agreeable solution that is in the best interest of the person for whom guardianship is being sought. The mediator helps the parties to explore their respective interests and to come to a resolution that works for both of them. Guardianship mediation can also provide an opportunity for family members to talk about their concerns, and to ensure that the individual's best interests are being met.
