Families voice guardianship concerns in court

Contact 13 Investigation

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) - More emotion was felt in a Contact 13 investigation about a system that many say is broken and sometimes does more harm to those it's supposed to protect.  

We've investigated problems with the guardianship court for nearly a year.
 
We found cases of double-billing clients, questionable fees, entire life savings spent and families pushed out when they tried to care for loved ones.   
 
As a result, the Nevada Supreme Court created a State Guardianship Commission which held its second meeting on Monday.
 
More than a dozen victim families and friends voiced their concerns for over two hours telling their stories and demanding change.  
 
Also, commission members were tasked to look at the fees private professional guardians charge in Nevada and how that compares to other states.  
 
The commission is expected to have final recommendations to improve the system by the end of the year.
