NM Guardianship Project
Program Description
Advocacy's New Mexico Guardianship Project provides legal services through guardianship and adoptions to address the growing need for formalized relationships with caregivers and the children they protect. The Kinship Guardianship Act provides that a qualified non-parent may assume legal responsibility for a child and care for the child as a parent. This project provides legal representation to adults who have stepped into the shoes of a parent when the biological or adoptive parents are unwilling or unable to care for the children. We petition the court for an order appointing the caregiver as legal guardian of the child, addressing social and financial needs during the process. In addition, we provide Online Powers of Attorney and Caregiver Affidavits as well as Financial Information.
