Family DHS Cases (Parents Only)

Family DHS Cases (Parents Only)

When possible, we provide advice and representation to parents in cases where the child welfare agency, called the Department of Human Services (DHS), is involved.

In these cases, DHS investigates and, in some situations, DHS might try to remove a child from their parent’s care and bring a case about the child to dependency court.  

We help parents try to keep their family together or to reunite with their child during the dependency court process.
