What Is Juvenile Dependency?

Juvenile dependency cases involve the court’s questioning of whether or not a child’s parent or parents are fit to provide care for their children. If the courts have sufficient reason to believe that a child’s safety is in jeopardy under the care of their parents, child protective services may take action and assume custody of a child until a safe home can be found. While a number of different factors will be considered in the courts decision, the child’s best interests are of utmost importance.

A child may be removed from their home by the courts under the following circumstances:

  • There is evidence that the child is being abused or neglected
  • There is evidence of domestic violence
  • The parents have a history of substance abuse
  • The child’s living conditions are unsanitary or otherwise dangerous

If it is deemed that a parent’s level of care is inadequate, the courts may place a child in the care of a relative, foster home, children’s home, or the other parent if the parents are not together. If you should ever be involved in a dispute of this nature, it is vital you retain powerful legal representation to protect your child’s wellbeing and vastly improve your chances of securing a favorable outcome for your situation.

Our firm can advocate on your behalf and provide the results-driven representation you need to keep your family together.
