Legal Help For Parents And Caregivers To Reunite With Kids in Foster Care

Children often enter the foster care system due to events that are completely outside of their control. The same can be said for parents and caregivers. Your child doesn’t have to stay in foster care. As a matter of fact, three out of five children in foster care are returned home to their parents or other relatives.

But how long it takes to get your kids back can depend on the knowledge and tenacity of your family lawyer. That’s were Safford Law comes in. We are a law firm dedicated to families and we believe parents who are ready to properly take care of their children should be able to do so.

Obtaining guardianship can be a long process but we’ll be with you every step of the way. Our experience proves it.
