Disability Community

"The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today."
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

 

Many are unaware that in Nova Scotia, every person ceases to be a minor and is considered legally competent when they attain the age of 19. Although not every individual with an intellectual disability will require a guardian, how will a family decide if their family member does?

In addition to learning what guardianship really means and why it is such a useful tool, families will discover the other legal options available to support their disabled family member. For those families who decide that guardianship is the right choice, we will discuss a unique option at a significantly lower cost than what is currently available.
