2 month old child came into DFS care on December 26, 2018 after the father was arrested for domestic violence against mother. Mother’s mental health issues prevented her from being able to care for the child. Both parents present with substance abuse issues. Initial plan was for maternal grandmother to take the mother and child back to Florida. This plan has fallen through. Both parents appear to be engaged with the department. The department is exploring placement with grandmother, as well as other relatives. Child seems to have substantial relative support. At this time the child is in need of an attorney to represent his wishes and legal rights as to permanency, placement, visitation and to ensure appropriate services are in place. There is an Adjudicatory Plea Hearing set for January 24, 2019 at 9:45 a.m. in Courtroom 14.
