Dependency Cases

A dependency case is based on allegations of abuse, abandonment and/or neglect of a child. The term dependency is based on the idea of a child being dependent on the State or Court to provide help and services.

The charges of abuse, abandonment and neglect are all based on allegations. The state is required to prove the allegations and provide help to reunite your family under strict timelines. The best interests of the children and families are the goal in this type of proceeding.

Each charge is serious and can potentially place the child in the custody of the government. You are entitled to legal counsel and to fully question the allegations and claims of the government in a trial.
