  • A Guide to Children Arriving at the Border: Laws, Policies and Responses

    This Guide which was first issued in summer 2014 provides information about the tens of thousands of children—some traveling with their parents and others alone—who have fled their homes in Central America and arrived at our southern border. This Guide seeks to explain the basics. Who are these children and why are they coming? What basic protections does the law afford them? What happens to the children once they are in U.S. custody? What have the U.S. and other governments done in response? What additional responses have advocates and legislators proposed? The answers to these questions are critical to assessing the U.S. government’s responses and understanding the ongoing debate about whether reforms to the immigration laws and policies involving children are needed.

  • Alternatives to Guardianship with Advance Directives

    When an individual is ill or is preparing in the event of future illness, there can sometimes be confusion about what the person’s wishes are for his or her own treatment. There might be disagreement among family members about the person's decisions concerning his or her health care. Allowing an individual to make advance directions concerning his or her health care lets each person control the direction of his or her own health care and eliminates that burden from other family members who may be in disagreement or who simply may not know what to do. In Georgia, advance directives refer to documents like the Georgia Advance Directive for Health Care and the Do Not Resuscitate Order, although Living Wills and Durable Powers of Attorney for Health Care validly executed in Georgia before July 1, 2007 will still be honored. Similar documents from other states are also recognized. Content Detail
