Free Legal Information on Elderly Issues Featured at Wednesday Law Series
GAINESVILLE, Fla.– Legal issues relating to care for the elderly, including information on wills and caring for incapacitated loved ones, will be featured Wednesday at the first of four free public forums in a new Community Law Series.
To be held at the Alachua County Health Department Auditorium (224 Se 24th Street, behind Food Lion on Hawthorne Road), the Wednesday program will begin at 7 p.m. and will feature Jean Sperbeck, senior staff attorney for the 8th Circuit Probate Division.
The four-part series is being sponsored by the University of Florida Levin College of Law Council and Alachua County Community Support Services. This week’s program is being provided by the law school’s Estates, Trusts and Elder Law Society organization.
“Topics will include what happens if there is no will at time of death, what about disposal of assets and who is to receive them, taking care of loved ones no longer able to care for themselves, and making sure important medical decisions can be made on behalf of those who cannot make them,” said Law College Council officer Nicole Kibert. “And we know there will be many other topics brought up during the Q/A session.”
Remaining programs and topics in the series, all to be held at the County Health Department:
March 26 – Family Law, sponsored by the law school’s Law Association for Women.
