Guardianship Caregiver Project

The Guardianship Caregiver Project assists caregivers who would like to obtain guardianship of a child age five or younger (and their older siblings), in order to prevent abuse or neglect.

Project advocates represent prospective guardians by preparing and filing guardianship petitions, responding to objections, representing our clients in mediation and guardianship hearings, and preparing post-hearing letters and orders.
