Do you know whether you need to be the legal guardian of your grandchildren? Duet can help answer that question at a Guardianship Clinic set for 3-5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 14, at the Church of the Beatitudes, 555 W. Glendale Ave.
If you are raising a grandchild or a minor relative, you will need formal custody to obtain benefits such as health care or to enroll the child in school. The legal process to gain custody can be complex and overwhelming. Duet has partnered with the Children’s Law Center (Volunteer Lawyers Program) to provide this free clinic that will help you complete the proper paperwork.
Though the workshop is free, reservations are required. Call Patricia at 602-274-5022, ext. 31.
Receive continuing support and information at Duet’s bimonthly Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Support Group. The next group is scheduled for 9-11 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 27, also at the Church of the Beatitudes. Attendance is free. Call 602-274-5022 for more information.
