Juvenile Law Dependency Attorneys

Far too many children suffer abuse and neglect. According to data highlighted by the National Children's Alliance, over 683,000 children were the victims of such circumstances in 2015. Mistreated children often suffer lasting physical and emotional damage, which can follow them long into adulthood.

Several states maintain dependency courts, which seek to protect the best interests of children who lack proper support from parents or guardians. While proposed solutions can vary dramatically according to local legislation and the unique circumstances of each case, dependency cases sometimes end with loving families being torn apart. Juvenile lawyers can act as key advocates for both the children and parents who might be impacted by the dependency process. 

How Can a Juvenile Law Attorney Help?

Juvenile law attorneys can play a critical role in dependency cases. These legal situations can vary significantly from one state to the next; attorneys with local expertise can help parents and children navigate their region's juvenile system to ensure the best possible resolution. Ideally, juvenile dependency attorneys will tailor their representation to account for unique complications or circumstances that could impact the final outcome. These attorneys are willing to guide families through every element of the dependency process, which could include:

  • Child protective services investigations
  • Child Abuse Central Index (CACI) grievance hearings
  • De facto parent matters
  • Dependency court proceedings

Juvenile Law Dependency FAQs

  • What Is Dependency Law?

    A niche area of juvenile law, dependency refers to any case involving minors under the care of allegedly neglectful or abusive parents. Dependency cases may also involve children who have lost their parents to death, imprisonment, or other circumstances beyond their control. In general, courts seek to pursue arrangements that benefit children's best interests. In reality, however, this process often ends in devastation.
