Lesson 4 - Urgent Temporary Guardianships

Urgent Temporary Guardianships
Emergency situations are handled in Massachusetts using The Verified Motion for Temporary (90-day) Guardianship. This 15-minute training explains typical situations demanding immediate action. It reviews the forms used to schedule a hearing in days instead of months. The case stories of Lisa and Jack help clarify two different, but similar procedures.

At the end of this training, you will be able to identify circumstances where a temporary guardianship can make sense, and explain the actions required to become a temporary guardian of an adult in Massachusetts.
