Child Dependency & Parental Rights Attorneys in Elk Grove
If the Department of Social Services is notified about alleged child abuse and they initiate an investigation, a child dependency process will ensure. The Child Dependency court works to ensure that children are taken out of abusive situations.
When a Social Services worker determines that a child is living in an unsafe environment, the child can be removed from the parents’ custody and made a dependent of the court.
The Child Dependency court can make an order to:
- Remove a child from the home
- Send a child to live with relatives or foster care providers
- Terminate the parental rights of the child’s mother or father
- Grant new parental rights to another individual or couple
