The client, a grandmother whose daughter had stage four cancer, wanted to make sure her grandchildren would be taken care of. The father’s whereabouts were unknown, and the family feared that the children might be placed in foster care if they couldn’t find help.
The Reynolds Cancer Support House had been assisting the family and called the Center for Arkansas Legal Services on behalf of the family to express the urgency of the matter. Kathryn Stocks volunteered to handle the case, even though three days earlier, she’d accepted another guardianship case.
Stocks obtained the guardianship for the grandmother of three and managed to resolve the entire matter in less than 25 days, helping the children secure a stable home.
