When the State of Utah’s Division of Child and Family Services is often called into domestic situations where a child has been deemed at risk for undue harm, neglect, or failure of care. This might also be in conjunction with one, or both of the parents, being charged with a crime, or a child being exposed to lewd and lascivious behavior.
Once the DCFS has been called in, there are strict rules and procedures put in place. This might include direct intervention from law enforcement, as well as the removal of the child from the home.
At this point, the Division of Child and Family Services will work with the family or the parent to understand the process and requirements for reunification. Violating any of these contingencies can delay or suspend the reunification process.
In a situation like this, the guidance and insights of an experienced lawyer like Mr. Dennis Pawelek and the associates at Pawelek Law PLLC can help you understand the legal reunification process. This might also include addressing any outstanding legal issues that are obstructing the process, or causing you to fail to meet the DCFS requirements.
If you are a parent currently involved in the reunification process through the Division of Child and Family Services and you need legal guidance with your active case, you should call 801-722-8918 to set up a consultation with Dennis Pawelek and the associates at Pawelek Law.
