Building a future where all people with developmental disabilities and their families experience their best lives possible.

The Supreme Court’s WINGS partnership (Working Interdisciplinary Network of Guardianship Stakeholders) has created a seven-page, plain language guide for the public on decision-making options less restrictive than guardianship. The Guide is called Options in Virginia to Help Another Person Make Decisions: Choices Less Restrictive Than Guardianship or Conservatorship. It sets out options for both health/personal decision-making, and financial decision-making. These options could help to preserve rights and reduce unnecessary guardianships and conservatorships. The Guide is posted on the Virginia Judicial System website at: http://vacourts.gov/courts/circuit/resources/guardian_options_pamphlet.pdf
