Walnut Creek California Juvenile Dependency Process Attorneys

Juvenile Dependency Process

When local California county Child Protection Services (CPS) receives allegations that a child is being abused or neglected and they feel that those allegations are credible, they will file a petition in the local juvenile dependency court to take action to help that child. In many instances, this will take the form of removal from the family home.

If Your Child Is the Subject of a CPS Investigation Time Is of the Essence

If you are a parent who has had your child taken by CPS or if you are under investigation, you need to act quickly. Kaspar & Lugay, LLP, is known for providing experienced, effective representation when protecting the rights of our clients. We have the resources and dedication required to help you not only refute the allegations against you, but take the fight to the opposition. We will also work to secure conditions for reunification that are achievable, should the court require them.

If your child is involved in a CPS investigation or has already been removed from your home, call 415-789-5881 or contact us immediately. We can take steps to expedite your case to speed up the return of your child.

The court will work to deal with certain major issues, such as:

  • Where will the child stay while the case is being resolved?
  • Are the allegations of abuse or neglect true?
  • What does the parent need to do to be able to bring their family back together?

At Kaspar & Lugay, LLP, our family law attorneys can help you face the difficult process of juvenile dependency and reunify your family. We fight for North Bay families. We understand the juvenile dependency process and what it takes to succeed in it. Let us help you protect your family during this difficult, stressful time.

Discuss Your Family?s Legal Options

We will work to develop a plan that convinces CPS that your child can safely remain with your family. If you have been falsely accused of child abuse, our attorneys will explain what measures you need to take to protect yourself. Don?t give up hope just yet.

We may suggest the following:

  • Informal supervision
  • Counseling
  • Involvement of grandparents or other friends or relatives

If you have an emergency dependency hearing with CPS, our lawyers will prepare paperwork and be ready to help you on very short-notice. There are strict time limits you must meet in order to take advantage of all legal routes to regain custody of your children. Contact us online today to schedule a consultation about your case.

Update: Case Closed! I just want to say thank you to the whole Kasper and Lugay Team! Brent got The “W” in my case. They worked hard on my child custody battle and were super flexible with my payments! Anyone that’s going through a separation knows the stress courts can bring, but Brent and his team made sure to make everything fast and easy as possible for me! Thank You Again! I hope I never have to go through something like this again but if I ever do I know who to call!

I hired Brent Kaspar & his team to assist me in the dissolution of marriage from my wife of 9+ years and love for 14+ years. This is obviously not any type of experience anyone want to go through, however I wanted the best direct & logical approach as the emotional & financial sides of this transition are difficult enough. Brent impressed me immediately with his knowledge of the process as well as his experience with every local attorney, mediator, judge, and whomever else I may be faced with addressing.... I would want him on my side.

My case was not simple or easy. After 5 years, my ex-husband, decided to try and terminate all alimony on a 26 year marriage, as well as obtain funds from me....The process with Brent Kaspar and this entire group was very thorough as well as methodical to achieve the end goal. Although there is always a high amount of stress when dealing with any legal matter, these individuals as are excellent at their jobs, relentless on getting information, light hearted when need be, and strong willed when dealing with others legal nonsense. We were able to settle prior to court and obtain/protect what I intended.
