Margaret Van Houten was recently selected to serve on the Iowa Guardianship and Conservatorship Reform Task Force for the state of Iowa.
The task force was created by the Iowa Supreme Court to review Iowa’s guardianship and conservatorship laws and procedures. They are additionally charged with proposing recommendations for new court processes and improvements to the current system of appointing and supervising guardians and conservators in Iowa.
Margaret looks forward to working with the other task force members in recommending improvements to the statutes and regulations that provide the framework for establishing and supervising court appointed guardians and conservators, all in the interest of protecting the health, well-being and financial status of children and incapacitated adults.
Margaret will work collaboratively with 52 other task force members from around the state in this effort. The Iowa State Bar Association has more information about the task force and their work.
