Guardian Partners currently operates in 21 counties representing 70% of Oregon residents. Our goal is to bring our important education and case monitoring programs to every Oregon county. We offer two tiers of program options for counties who wish to partner with us and there is no cost to the court for our programs.

 

Program Policy 07.01.21

 

We have tools to make the process smooth and can provide sample language for many of the necessary court documents:

    • Presiding Judge's Order and Supplementary Local Rules
    • Letters mandating fiduciary courses
    • Letters appointing a volunteer case monitor

 

We're pleased to speak with judges or court staff to see how Guardian Partners can best serve your community and we'll give you access to review our online courses. Contact Executive Director Marc Kochanski to inquire: 971-409-1358 or marc@guardian-partners.org.

What the judges are saying.

"Our county is using the guardian monitoring program to randomly review older cases to ensure the guardianship is still going well, and to review cases where the court has concerns or issues. The reports are very detailed, thorough and it's nice to get a glimpse into the protected person's life. The case monitors provide guardians with resources that they may not have been unaware of. It's been a great addition to our probate department and helps make court oversight stronger. Thank you case monitors!"

Judge Cynthia Easterday, Yamhill County Circuit Court

"Guardians and conservators take on great responsibilities in their respective roles. As a judge, it seems only fair we devote resources to equip them with the education and resources they need to perform their duties. Guardian Partners also gives the court the necessary tools to perform its role in overseeing the guardianships and conservatorships we are tasked with monitoring. I am proud to bring this education and monitoring program to Lincoln County and am grateful to the many volunteers who devote their time and talents in offering this valuable resource throughout our state."

Judge Sheryl Bachart, Lincoln County Circuit Court
