Juvenile Dependency Attorney
At the Law Office of Karen A. Schoenau, we help siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles or other family members through private dependency proceedings. Through a juvenile private dependency proceeding an individual, usually a family member of the minor child, seeks the assistance of Child Court to determine if a child needs a proper parental figure.
A child may be in need a dependency if:
- There is no parent or guardian
- There is no parent or guardian willing to exercise or capable of exercising care and control over the child
- The child is not being provided with the necessities of life, including adequate food, clothing, shelter or medical care
- The child’s home is unfit by reason of abuse, neglect, cruelty or depravity by a parent, a guardian, or any other person having custody or care of the child.
If any of the above conditions exist the child will generally become of a ward of the state unless there is a family member willing to become a guardian for the child.Finding the Solutions That Work for Your Family
