Host: Children's Law Center of California
More than 240,000 children in Texas are being raised in households without either parent. A new Texas law allows parents to delegate some of their parental rights to relatives without the cost and trauma of court proceedings. Adrea helped relative caretakers perform basic tasks, like enroll the child they care for in school and apply for public benefits on her behalf. Additionally, Adrea provided legal education and direct representation on other children’s issues including custody, special education, school discipline, and teen violence.
