VIDEOS ON PETITIONING

        VIDEO – PART I        WHAT TO THINK ABOUT FIRST

        VIDEO – PART II       THE PETITIONING PROCESS

VIDEO – HOW TO PETITION – This is a narrated Power Point

In this video, we go over some of what is in Part II for the Alaska Court System video                but also go over PG 100 itself to explain how to fill out the form.

VIDEO – PART III    DO YOU WANT TO BE THE GUARDIAN OR CONSERVATOR?

This video is Part III of the court’s three part series and ASAGA strongly encourages watching it prior to petition so you have good expectations of what a guardian/conservator can and cannot do and if this is a role you want to take on as it is a court order.  It is one way to satisfy the education requirement if you are in fact appointed.
