Parenthood Toolkit

Becoming a parent can be one of life’s greatest joys. It also comes with legal rights and responsibilities. Parents have a critical role to play in raising and supporting their children.  

Knowing your options can help you make the best decision for you and your family.

This online toolkit will help you find the right path for you and will help you understand the legal avenues open to you as a parent. You can learn more about parental rights by attending a free, online clinic held on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 11:00 AM.
