Three siblings, ages 6 years to 2 years, came into DFS care in November, 2016, due to their mother’s and the youngest sibling’s father’s alcohol abuse and domestic violence. The older sibling’s natural father is currently unknown, and the middle sibling’s natural father is incarcerated. The older sibling is currently placed with putative paternal fictive kin, whom are adoptive resources. The younger two siblings are placed in a licensed foster home; however the maternal grandmother has recently moved to Las Vegas and is a potential adoptive resource for the two younger siblings. The mother is currently exercising supervised visits at Child Haven with all siblings. The youngest sibling’s father has exercised sporadic supervised visits with that child, but he has failed to comply with the domestic violence services requirements made by DFS, and he has stopped communicating with DFS. Educational and behavioral issues may need to be addressed with the middle sibling. Visitation between the siblings may also need to be addressed. An attorney is needed to represent the children’s wishes and legal rights regarding placement, permanency, visitation, and to ensure the proper services are in place.
