The San Antonio Current is examining probate courts and guardianship issues in Bexar County.
The article refers to Fort Worth Weekly and our investigation into questionable tactics by Tarrant County Guardianship Services.
Here’s an excerpt:
Judge Spencer says there’s the need to create a guardianship program in Bexar County, something akin to Tarrant County’s Guardianship Services Inc., to better manage exploding caseloads. “We’ve been having an active conversation about creating something like that.” But guardianship reform activists have warned that Tarrant County’s model, which began as a volunteer program to help the old and vulnerable, quickly grew into a troubling coalition of judges, attorneys, care providers and quasi-governmental nonprofit employees as detailed by previous Fort Worth Weekly stories by Jeff Prince.
