Staying Current With Changes to Juvenile Dependency Cases
In 2002, more than 38,000 dependency cases were brought before the California courts. In the fiscal year 2006-2007, that number jumped to over 100,000, according to the Judicial Council of California. This drastic increase in cases caused both the state legislature and the state court system to reexamine California’s juvenile dependency laws. Because of this, it is imperative to hire an experienced lawyer. One mistake in procedure can lead to devastating consequences for both parents and children.
