Workshop: Rights of Relatives in Family Court

Thursday March 25

Workshop attendees will learn about the legal options a grandparent or other relative has for establishing a relationship with the child in their care. Attendees will learn the differences between kinship foster care, custody, guardianship and adoption as well as the financial support options that come with all of them. A peer trainer, a grandparent who has already been through the system, will
conduct part of this workshop. Attendees will receive a copy of the workshop curriculum as well as a copy of LIFT's Legal Resource Guides, "Custody and Visitation"; "Child Protective Proceedings Rights and Responsibilities"; and "The Rights of Relatives in Family Court".
