Episode 3. Elder Abuse
Guests: Jim Clapp, Carol Pickup, Ron Winter


For many people, growing older brings a fate worse than death - having their rights, liberty and assets removed. It is not uncommon for people, when they cross the threshold of old age, to be declared legally incapable. When that happens, virtually every decision about their life will be made by someone else - right down to what they wear, who they can see, and whether they receive medical care or not. Often, they end up spending their last days - or years - confined to an institution living a life which is sub-standard by almost every measure.

It is not uncommon for people, when they cross the threshold of old age, to be declared legally incapable.

Often, they end up spending their last days - or years - confined to an institution living a life which is sub-standard by almost every measure.


Despite their best efforts to ensure his or her golden years are secure in body, mind and assets, an older person is particularly vulnerable to abuse through the legal process. Carefully-constructed plans and legal directives can be cast aside, leaving the elderly person prey to all forms of abuse. Few people know just how vulnerable they are, legally and otherwise. The appointment of powers of attorney or health care proxy decision-makers are rendered null and void if someone successfully petitions the court to have the person declared incapable and to become their legal guardian. And, the law allows anyone to make an application to become a person's legal guardian. Adult guardianship is often sought because of illness or mental incapacity of an older person, but it can also happen because other people (sometimes with the assistance or permission of public bodies) seek to gain control over the elderly person's assets, and their lives in a deceptive and fraudulent manner. Indeed, this phenomenon is on the increase in North America, so much so, that it now has a name - "granny snatching". Granny snatchers use the law as the means to their deceitful ends. Fraud and abuse of the elderly is rising, and the lure of the collective wealth of the Boomer Generation is a magnet for unscrupulous people. Elder law has been described as "the hottest practice area" in the legal profession today, and for good reason.



Episode 4. Family Law Mediation
Guests: Kathleen-Purvis-Bellamano, Michael Lomax


We are going to talk about the most important and most popular form of alternate dispute resolution: mediation. Most people who resolve their family law disputes by going to court, will tell you that the experience was time-consuming, expensive, complicated, and very stressful. Well, of course it is. Imagine! They're asking a total stranger to make important decisions about themselves, their finances, and their children. I believe that many of the parents that we see in family court could have resolved their disputes in a much more positive and healing way, if they'd gone to mediation. What is mediation? How does it work? How long does it take? How much does it cost? And how do you know if it's right for you? Our guests today are well-qualified to answer all of those questions, and much, much more.
