Keep Your Children Safe

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?

At Stolar & Associates, A Professional Law Corporation, our family law 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 30+ 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 (310) 984-1411 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.
