Back up Plans

Are you worried about your health?

Are you raising children who were previously in foster care?

Would you like to secure the future of your adopted children?

 

Back Up Planning allows families to decide who will care for minor children in the event of illness, death, or incapacity.  Back Up Planning may include:

  • Meeting with the family to choose a back up person
  • Protecting the continuation of the child’s benefits
  • Legal follow up until the back up plan is complete in court
  • Types of Back Up Planning include: Standby Adoption, Standby Guardianship and Short-Term Guardianship
