It’s been a long road getting guardianship of Brielle.
- Met with the attorney (and paid the $3,750 fees)
We’re on to the next step in the process since we received a letter from the probate court yesterday.
Brielle now has a court appointed attorney.
We also received the evaluator’s report.
Geez. The wording they use in the evaluation report just stinks. I mean, I know and see reality with Brielle. But, nothing like seeing it that sort of wording.
…incapacitated by the reason of mental retardation and cerebral palsy.
…This condition will be life-long.
The next step is receiving notice of the court date. With Brielle’s birthday coming up later next week, clearly we’re not going to get final guardianship before she turns 18. But, we knew we started this process later than we should have. If only we had known.
Hint. Hint. If you need to get guardianship of your special needs child, start at least three months before he/she turns 18!
So, we continue to wait…..
