Juvenile Dependency Process
Stolar & Associates, A Professional Law Corporation: Passionately Serving
Families for 30+ Years
When the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services
(DCFS) receives allegations that a child is being abused or neglected
and they feel that those allegations are credible, they will file a petition
with the Juvenile Dependency court to take action to help that child.
In many instances, this will take the form of removal from the family home.
The court will work to deal with certain major issues, such as:
- Where will the child stay while the case is being resolved?
- Are the allegations of abuse or neglect true?
- What does the parent need to do to be able to bring their family back together?
