Los Angeles Juvenile Dependency Proceedings Lawyer
What are Dependency Proceeding?
In California when a child is considered at risk, the Department of Children and Family Services files a petition with the Juvenile Dependency Court. This then allows them to be able to intervene in the child's life, ultimately for their safety and well being. All jurisdictions in situations like this are made by a judge only. The child in the majority of cases is removed from their home until a full investigation can be done to verify any allegations made regarding any abuse to the child. If your child has been taken away you must contact a juvenile criminal lawyer to be your advocate during this stressful time.
There are three aspects of dependency proceedings that the parent(s) should know and understand.
- Firstly, where will your child be placed during this time?
- Secondly, and extremely important, are the charges against you true?
- Thirdly, how can you regain the custody of my child?
