Virtual Training: Guardianship Practice and Procedure in Philadelphia County

Help clients care for their loved ones

VIP volunteers play an essential role in helping low-income Philadelphians obtain guardianship of incapacitated family members. Join us to learn the basics.


When an adult of any age becomes incapacitated, or is otherwise unable to make financial, medical, or personal decisions on their own behalf, a loved one will often want to take on that responsibility. However, VIP clients typically lack the means and know-how needed to obtain legal guardianship. VIP volunteers help families obtain guardianship over their loved ones, enabling them to provide lifelong care and support.

This training, led by Kathy Ochroch of Blank Rome LLP and Timothy Holman of Smith Kane Holman, LLC, will address the processes and procedures for initiating and completing an adult guardianship petition in Philadelphia County.

Due to office closures and in the interest of protecting our community’s health, this training will take place via Zoom. Please RSVP below for the Zoom meeting information.
