Do you know whether you need to be the legal guardian of your grandchildren? Duet can help answer that question during a free guardianship clinic, 3-5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 13 at the Duet offices, 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. Duet has partnered with the Children’s Law Center (Volunteer Lawyers Program) to provide a free monthly clinic to help you complete proper paperwork. Reservations required; call 602-274-5022, ext. 31.
In addition, Duet hosts a bimonthly support group for grandparents who are raising their grandchildren. For February, the meetings are 9-11 a.m. Feb. 12 & 26, at the Duet offices. The meetings are free, but an RSVP is requested at 602-274-5022.
