Interested in pursuing guardianship of a child in your care?

LFCS provides guardianship suitability studies for caregivers.  A court ordered guardianship allow guardians to make important decisions for the child’s care. These may include accessing medical care, making medical decisions for the child, and enrolling the child in school. Some counties in Missouri require that a guardianship suitability study be completed by a licensed child placing agency as part of the guardianship process.  LFCS provides this service and can assist you through the court process based on our many years of experience in this area.  LFCS also offers counseling for children who may need support related to the circumstances that led to guardianship.
