This is a conflict case for our office and requires a pro bono attorney to represent two siblings, ages 4 and 3 years old, who came into DFS care in May of 2019 due to domestic violence between the parents with one of the children intervening. The parents have a history of engaging in domestic violence while under the influence. A knife was involved in the incident. It is relevant that the parents have a history of physical domestic violence and substance abuse that predates the birth of these kids and continues to occur in the presence of these two children. The father was arrested for child abuse in this matter, since then has been released with extensive supervision. The children are currently placed with a Maternal Aunt. These children are in need of an attorney to represent their legal wishes and rights as to permanency, placement, visitation, and to ensure appropriate services are in place. There is an Adjudicatory Plea Hearing set for June 5, 2019 at 9:00 a.m. in Courtroom 21.
