Committed to Permanent Placement of Children
At Claiborne & Surmay, P.C., we are often contacted by foster parents who are interested in adoption, but unsure of their rights in the juvenile court system. We are happy to meet with and represent foster parents interested in adopting their foster children so that permanence can be achieved as quickly as possible.
Legal Guardianship Services
Claiborne & Surmay, P.C. also provides guardianship services. We help foster parents and extended family members apply for and obtain legal guardianship over minor-age children as well as incapacitated adults. This involves gathering all necessary birth and medical papers, as applicable, and completing the forms required for establishing justifiable cause to obtain temporary or permanent legal guardianship.
We invite you to contact our offices in Atlanta or Savannah to discuss your specific legal concerns and to set up an office consultation to meet with one of our attorneys about your need for a guardianship.
