78 Looking After Dependent Parents – Dealing With the Legal Issues Our parents took care of us and we take care of our children. That’s the usual assumption about how things should go. However, sometimes our parents, (or other adults we know), lose the legal capacity to make their own decisions and we’re called on to assume this responsibility. This presentation is an opportunity to learn about the legal issues involved in these situations and the options available to address them. Areas for discussion include:  Determining when capacity is lost – how does this happen and is the loss always total?  When are guardians or trustees needed and how are they appointed?  What parts do personal directives and enduring powers of attorney play?  How can accountability and liability issues be addressed?

Separation and Divorce In the course of exploring what can happen legally when a couple decides to separate or divorce, the speaker will discuss issues like:  The process – what is the court process? – are there other ways, like mediation or collaborative law, to try and how do they work?  Child maintenance, custody (parenting) and access (contact) – how the children will be looked after  Spousal maintenance – the extent to which one separating or divorcing spouse will have to support the other  Matrimonial property – how the property will be divided.
