A newborn baby was born substance-exposed and went into DFS care on February 14, 2022. His mother used Heroin and Methamphetamine during her pregnancy. His father is unable to care for him as he is currently in the Las Vegas Detention Center on unrelated charges. Because of the substance use and incarceration, his mother and father cannot provide adequate supervision and there is a physical risk of harm to the baby. The mother is living with the paternal grandparents and an in-home safety plan has been established in the paternal grandparents’ home so the newborn is also there. At this time, the newborn baby boy 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. Next Hearing(s): Review Hearing on 8/9/2022 at 3:00 pm in Courtroom 11.
