CHANGES TO MINOR GUARDIANSHIPS AND NON-PARENTAL CUSTODY CASES
Effective July 22, 2011, House Bill 1053 amended RCW 11.88 and 11.92 and requires online training prior to attending the in-person guardian training. You must complete the online training and provide the declaration of completion of guardian training in order to register for the below listed guardian training.
Pursuant to LSPR 98.24, effective January 1, 2007, Spokane County Superior Court has developed mandatory guardian training for nonprofessional (family and volunteer) guardians. This rule applies to all guardianship cases including those originating under RCW 11.88 and SPR 98.16W.
To provide nonprofessional guardians with information on their legal responsibilities, paperwork and reports that are required in serving as a guardian.
