Grandparents raising grandchildren workshop on Tuesday

The second workshop of a three-part series on legal procedures and rights of grandparents and other family caregivers of children, postponed by snow last month, will take place on Tuesday.

It will focus on working with the state Department of Children and Families.

The event is from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Athol Town Hall.

The workshop series runs through April and explores a range of topics including legal services for the child and caregiver, working with the Department of Children and Families, and access to benefits for kinship caregivers. Each workshop will feature a presentation by experienced local attorneys who work on custody and guardianship issues every day in the courts.
