Juvenile Dependency Process

Stolar Law Group: Passionately Serving Families for 40 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?

At Stolar Law Group, our attorneys can help you face the difficult process of juvenile dependency and reunify your family. We have been helping individuals and families face family law challenges for 40 years. We understand the juvenile dependency process and what it takes to succeed in it. Let us help you protect your family during this difficult, stressful time.


Concerned? Call us at (818) 600-6534 for an initial consultation.


Discuss Your Family's Legal Options

We will work to develop a plan that convinces CPS that your child can safely remain with your family. If you have been falsely accused of child abuse, our attorneys will explain what measures you need to take to protect yourself. Don't give up hope just yet.

We may suggest the following:

  • Informal supervision
  • Counseling
  • Involvement of grandparents or other friends or relatives

If you have an emergency dependency hearing with CPS, our lawyers will prepare paperwork and be ready to help you on very short-notice. There are strict time limits you must meet in order to take advantage of all legal routes to regain custody of your children.


Turn to our firm for assistance as soon as possible.

  • They went to war for me

    This Law firm is truly the best team I have ever had the pleasure of working with. They are worth every penny that you pay them and more.  I hadn't seen my daughter in almost 2 years and they went to war for me.

  • They did a great job

    Steven and his team moved right in on a matter involving a close friend who was in very serious trouble. I was very impressed with the thoroughness and thoughtfulness displayed. Although they came in on an emergency basis, they did a great job.
