Idaho State Bar & Idaho Law Foundation Announcements
The following announcements have been published within the past six (6) months.
The Guardianship and Conservatorship Committee has recommended a requirement that all petitioners file a case information sheet in guardianship, conservatorship and involuntary mental health commitment cases that provides contact information and necessary personal identifying information for the proposed ward/patient and the proposed guardian or conservator. This cover sheet will provide the Court and the Idaho State Police with the necessary data to ensure individuals who are prohibited from buying firearms are identified, will enable courts to have the contact information needed for monitoring, and will facilitate the background check required for all proposed guardians in adult cases. The sheet will be exempt from disclosure. The proposed amendments are on the court’s webpage at http://www.isc.idaho.gov/problem-solving/idaho-court-rules-and-amendments-available-for-public-comment. Comments are due by November 22.

The Idaho State Bar is partnering with the North Idaho Violence Prevention Center (NIVPC) and their domestic violence shelter. When a domestic violence victim arrives at the shelter finding their own space and retreat outside of communal living environment provides privacy. Having individual supplies or a “care package” upon arrival will support them in the process of transitioning.
The Idaho State Bar and NIVPC are requesting donation of items for these care packages. Also, volunteer assistance to assemble and stock the packages is needed. Your participation would be greatly appreciated. Please bring items with you to the Annual Meeting or feel free to stop by to giving a hand.
Below is a list of possible items in order of “most desired”, but not limited to or fully entailed to this list.
- Individually wrapped snack item
- Travel size over-the-counter medications (Tylenol, aspirin, etc.)
- Chap stick/lip gloss
- Nail grooming (with tweezers)
- Shower scrunchies
- Sewing kits
- Eye liner
- Bubble bath
- Body wash
- Gum/mint or candy item
- Ages 12 and Under: books, stuffed animal, toys, puzzles, games, playing cards.
The Idaho State Bar and NIVCP thank you for your time, services to the victims of domestic violence and donating needed items to assist NIVCP’s emergency domestic violence shelter.
