What is Children’s Law?
Children’s law concerns the rights and protection of children. Children’s court considers matters involving parental rights, fostering, adoption, surrogacy, dependency, and other matters involving the health and well-being of children. Being hauled into children’s court can be a jarring experience for any parent, even when you intend to be there. It’s important to have a seasoned children’s law and children’s services attorney on your side to ensure your rights and your family are protected.
Child Dependency in California
Child dependency matters arise when a concerned party believes that the health and well-being of a child are threatened by continued placement in the home. Dependency law becomes a factor when the state intervenes to remove or attempts to remove a child from the care of their current parent or guardian.
A child dependency matter can arise whenever the county or state is notified about alleged abuse or neglect. A representative for the agency will investigate the claims and the circumstances of the child’s home life. If the investigator determines that the child is unsafe in the home, they can seek to have the child removed and made a dependent of the court.
If the child is taken from the home, the parent or parents must be given a hearing before a court. The child dependency court has the authority to do the following and more:
- Remove a child from the home
- Send the child to live with relatives
- Place the child in foster care
- Terminate parental rights
- Establish new parental rights
- Return a child to their parent’s home
It’s vital to have professional, experienced representation on your side when you appear before the court for your dependency matter. A children’s law attorney at Blasser Law can help you protect your rights as a parent and ensure that your children are not unjustly removed from your home.
