CDEL administers the Pro Se Adult Guardianship Help Desk (“Help Desk”) at the Daley Center, assisting pro se petitioners file. Volunteering at the Help Desk is a great way to learn the Guardianship process, preparing pleadings, Summonses and Notices of Motion. CDEL welcomes those who wish to obtain valuable practical experience, as well as those seeking academic credit or volunteer hours for public interest programs.

Join us for a training session, or to learn about the basics of an uncontested guardianship proceeding in Cook County. No experience in probate or guardianship law is necessary. Part one of the training is an overview of guardianship law in Illinois. Part two of the training explains the process of filing a petition at the Daley Center, how to complete the pleadings, and how volunteers assist pro se petitioners at the Help Desk.

2.0 of MCLE credit available.
