CHILD WELFARE

We understand that it can be disheartening and stressful when your child(ren) are apprehended by the Child & Family Services (CFS). This does not automatically mean that you are a horrible or bad parent, but that the CFS has outstanding concerns for your child(ren)'s well-being. 

Sometimes, this means that CFS are looking out for the best interest of the child and ensure their protection first while providing you with the necessary support to help you and your family. 

There are times that the CFS may be over protective and they act first before understanding your child(ren) and your family's particular circumstances. 

Our team of experienced child welfare lawyers can assist you with the procedures and advise you of your rights during a CFS investigation, apprehension of your child(ren) and the resolution of the issues. 

Our team of lawyers are experienced in a wide variety of child welfare matters including:

 

  • Permanent Guardianship Order (PGO)

  • Temporary Guardianship Order (TGO)

  • Initial Custody Hearings

  • Supervision Orders

  • Post-PGO Access
