Case Number: 2021-032313

In Children's Attorneys Project (Abuse/Neglect Cases)

Two children, a 6-year-old and a 1-year-old, came into DFS on or about June 14, 2021 because of environmental neglect. While interviewing the family for a companion case, the investigator observed the home as uninhabitable and unsafe for the children and the adults in the home minimized the conditions and did not demonstrate an appreciation of the dangers in the home. Initially, the mother cooperated with DFS to clean up the home and the children returned to the home. After an unannounced family visit in October 2021, the children were taken into protective care as the home returned to the prior dangerous state, blamed it on one of the children, and the mother stopped making efforts to cooperate. Their mother experiences symptoms of mental health conditions and is not consistent with care. 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. Next Hearing(s): Disposition Hearing on 12/8/2021 at 1:30 pm in Courtroom 10.
