Case Number: 2022-011545

In Abuse/Neglect Cases - Children's Attorneys Project

A 10-year-old boy and his two siblings came into care in November 13, 2021 after their parents were arrested and further investigation revealed that the family was homeless, there was an extensive history of domestic violence, untreated mental health concerns, and that the parents were abusing drugs, including heroin and meth. This case is specific to only the 10-year-old. When the kids first entered care, their foster parent reported they were constantly bickering, defiant, and aggressive among other behaviors. The 10-year-old was constantly throwing tantrums, but has improved dramatically and is processing his trauma from neglect and working through anger and emotional regulation struggles. They initially were having phone calls with their parents, but the parents have since disappeared and do not communicate with them nor with the case worker. The permanency plan is guardianship to their maternal grandmother in Michigan. As a result, this boy is in need of an attorney to represent his legal wishes and rights as to permanency, placement, visitation, and to ensure appropriate services are in place. Next Hearing(s): Review Hearing on 11/10/22 at 3:00 pm in Courtroom 12.
