Right now we are serving as the guardian ad litem in guardianship and conservatorship transfer cases. Investigations are done by phone and Zoom. Hearings held virtually as well. The Richland County Probate Ct. relies on how help with these cases as we are assisting only those who cannot afford to pay a 3rd party to be the guardian ad litem. Cases involve adults with a range of issues- schizophrenia, dementia, autism, etc. Great chance to hone those interviewing skills and transferring your investigation skills and information to a report. This report is important and necessary part of the file for the Court when making a decision.
