Care & Custody

By "care and custody," we mean the state laws that govern the continuum of legal relationship options -- adoption, guardianship, legal custody, power of attorney and consent laws -- that may be available to grandparents and other relatives and the children they raise. This topic area addresses these legal relationships, which vary dramatically because they are defined at the state level.
