An Overview of Juvenile Dependency

Juvenile dependency cases, in short, involve the court’s questioning whether a parent or parents can sufficiently provide care for their children. If it is deemed that a child’s wellbeing is compromised under the parents’ care, the court will step in and assume care of the child until a suitable home is found. The courts’ decision will be made with the best interests of the child in mind.

The courts may attempt to remove a child from their situation if:

  • The parent(s) have a history of drug abuse
  • Evidence of domestic violence is present
  • There is evidence of neglectful behavior
  • The living conditions are deemed unsanitary or dangerous

If it is deemed that your level of care is insufficient, the courts may attempt to place your child with a close relative, a foster home, a children’s home, or, if you are not together, the other parent. To avoid this, it is urgent that you seek strong legal guidance if you should ever be involved in a dispute of this nature. With our knowledgeable representation, our firm can help you seek results-driven legal representation aimed at keeping your family together and ensuring your child’s safety.
