The Nebraska Foster & Adoptive Parent Association

2014 Guardianship Training Classes

Education for Guardians of Nebraska State Wards

Guardians of children who are in the custody of the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services due to abuse and/ or neglect face many issues that normally are not addressed in the probate code or in probate court proceedings. Foster parents (prospective guardians) or guardians of former state wards should fully understand the permanency options of adoption and guardianship, including the rights, responsibilities, and commitments necessary for each. The Nebraska Foster and Adoptive Parent Association facilitates a 3 hour Guardianship training that provides participants with detailed information on the duties of the guardian, rights of the ward, annual reporting requirements, and instruction on the forms required for guardianships of this population of minors.

This class fulfills Guardianship education requirements set by the Nebraska Probate Code. Educational requirements for guardians must be met within 3 months of appointment.

Note:  Foster Parents may attend the Guardianship training for continuing credit hours.

Pre-registration is required for the class by phone or email to:

The Nebraska Foster and Adoptive Parent Association

1-877-257-0176 or felicia@nfapa.org

A registration fee of $30 per participant is due upon arrival at the class.

Registration is required at least one week ahead of the training class.
