Know your rights for legal guardianships

Do you know whether you need to be the legal guardian of your grandchildren? Duet can help answer that question in a special Guardianship Clinic set for 3-5 p.m. Friday, May 9, at the Duet offices on the campus of 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 by attending Duet’s bimonthly Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Support Group. The next group is scheduled for 9-11 a.m. Thursday, May 22, also at the Duet offices. Attendance is free. Call 602-274-5022 for more information.
