GUARDIANSHIP

​​​​Milestones in a child’s life can be exciting. But sometimes, they take us by surprise…like when our child goes from being a child to an adult. Understand the pros and cons of filing for guardianship and what that will mean for your family by participating in our parent workshops. We proudly partner with 2 firms in Metro-Atlanta that can help you determine what’s best for your family. Contact Laura Akins at https://nadlerbiernath.com/ or Will Fawcett at https://www.cf-firm.com/.
