A newborn baby girl came into DFS care on February 24, 2022 after her mother gave birth to her and both the mother and baby tested positive for marijuana. It is not clear yet if she is also on other drugs and there are concerns about her ability to care for the baby. The mother may not have stable housing but reportedly was trying to find housing through HELP of Southern Nevada. She reports she is not in contact with the father of the newborn but has his contact information. The mother has older children who are not in her care and an open case with DFS because of concerns of domestic violence and drug use, but this case is only for the newborn baby. This baby girl needs an attorney to represent her wishes and legal rights as to permanency, placement, and visitation and to ensure appropriate services are in place. Next Hearing(s): Disposition on 6/6/2022 at 11:00 am; Review Hearing on 8/9/2022 at 2:00 pm in Courtroom 4.
