A 16-year-old was taken into DFS care after a Protective Custody Hearing on 10/21/2021 because both parents tested positive for drugs and were determined unsafe. The judge ordered a pick up for the teenager and she was located with her father and showed signs of drug use. Her father reported that she had run away with her mother and had just come into his care shortly before she was located with her father. There was no in-home safety plan because of drug use and domestic violence, therefore she was placed at Child Haven. She is now staying with fictive kin. At this time, this teenager is in need of an attorney to represent their wishes and legal rights as to permanency, placement, visitation and to ensure appropriate services are in place. Next Hearing(s): Permanency Planning Hearing on 10/12/2022 at 10:45 am in Courtroom 11.
