Child Dependency

Why You Need to Hire a Lawyer for Your Child Dependency Case (WI 300)

In a child dependency case, you could lose your parental rights to your child. There is a lot at stake, and it is a long, complex process. That is why you should seek legal representation from a private child dependency attorney if you are involved in a child dependency case. How can a private child dependency lawyer help you in your child dependency case?

Understanding the Child Dependency Process (WI 300)

Child dependency cases are very complicated and often involve several hearings, including a detention hearing, jurisdiction hearing and disposition hearing. Navigating this process alone or with a court-appointed lawyer can be difficult, especially when you are worried that you may lose legal custody of your child.

An experienced child dependency lawyer will be able to help you understand the child dependency court process. Your lawyer can help you learn what to expect and how to prepare for each of the hearings in the dependency process.

Your Child Could Be Returned to Your Care

During the child dependency process, the court could decide to remove your child from your custody and send him or her to live with a relative or in a foster home while the case is pending. The object of the child dependency court is to make sure your child is not living in a dangerous environment.

An experienced child dependency lawyer may be able to show the court that you do not present a danger to your child, and that your child should be returned to your care immediately.

The Allegations Against You Could Be Shown to Be False

One of the court hearings in a child dependency case is a jurisdiction hearing. At this hearing, the court will decide if the allegations of child abuse or neglect against you are true. If the court finds the allegations true, the case will move forward to the next hearing. If the court finds that the allegations are not true, your child could be returned to your care immediately.

The jurisdiction hearing is like a trial in a child dependency case. In order for you to have the best possible chance at proving to the court that the allegations against you are false, you need an experienced child dependency lawyer fighting for you. Your lawyer can investigate the case and present facts that raise doubt that you committed child abuse or neglect.
