"Adult Family Conflict Mediation"
(Probate and Elder Care Disputes)

RIMA Workshop  
Family Conflict can arise at all stages of family life.  “Adult Family Conflict" generally refers to a wide range of disputes that can arise when decisions must be made affecting an older or disabled person; as well as disputes that might arise between related adults in the probate process after a family member has died. These topics about which family members might disagree include:              
• Guardianship, Conservatorship, Financial Administration and Powers of Attorney
• Health Care and Long Term Care
• Estate Planning
• Probate Estate Administration and Distribution       
The Objective of this Workshop is to create a context for Mediators when mediating the wide range of conflicts that might arise for families when relatives age, became less able to care for themselves, or die.  These issues present a variety of challenging situations and our Moderator has assembled a panel of experienced experts to help navigate these issues.
