Adult Guardianships, Advance Directives, and Mental Health Law 2018 Edition

This guide, created for attorneys who are planning for or serving the needs of persons no longer able to make decisions for themselves, assists in the crafting and implementation of plans for such instances.

Given the aging of our general population, the issues of guardianships and advance directives continue to grow more and more prevalent. This handbook provides the practitioner with several options for advising clients about such issues, taking into account the duty to advise clients about the availability of advance directives for consideration of end-of-life decisions prior to a time of crisis. The book also contains discussion of guardianships both for the person and for the estate, and has an outline of the various forms of advance directives recognized in Illinois. The rich-text forms (Microsoft Word for Windows) include the Statutory Short Form Power of Attorney for Health Care and the Statutory Short Form Power of Attorney for Property, as well as a Declaration for Mental Health Treatment and Living Will, among other useful forms.
