Dealing With The Loss Of Children And CPS
Indiana takes a strong interest in the children of the state. The Department of Child Services (DCS) lists as its mission to protect children from abuse and neglect and to provide child support services. These cases may be classified as CHINS (Child in Need of Services). This means that in some cases, children can be removed from their parent’s care and custody. What can you do if this happens to you?
We Can Help You Work For The Return Of Your Children
This can be an incredibly stressful time for any parent. The bureaucracy of DCS and Child Protective Services (CPS) can be confusing and difficult to work with. You may not be certain why your child or children were removed and on your own, you may have difficulty figuring out how to get them back or who even who to speak with.
Our attorney The Gaunt Law Office can help. As a former prosecutor, he understands complex laws and bureaucracies, and can help you navigate through court hearings if necessary and administrative procedures to get your children back.
Indiana Has A Large Number Of Children Out Of Home
In recent years, Indiana has experienced a larger than average number of children who have been removed from their family homes. Some of this has been attributed to the use of opioids in many communities. To add to this problem, DCS has often found itself overwhelmed with much higher workloads for its staff. This has negative consequences for everyone and can make it more difficult for parents to get their children back.
Our lawyer can help you deal with all these problems. He can translate the confusing and sometimes cryptic language these agencies use and work to cut through bureaucracy to resolve your issues and help you be reunited with your children.
