Greenlight Family services recognizes that the illness, death or incapacitation of a legal guardian can create uncertainty for the placement of the child or disabled adult they are caring for.
Standby guardianship is a form of back-up planning that makes it possible for the legal guardian to select an individual or couple that they can trust to care for their ward if the need arises. It is a legal process that allows the backup caregiver to easily gain legal custody.
Greenlight legal services offers standby guardianship services on its own, or to families that are also completing adoption or guardianship services with Greenlight.
