Helping Clients Keep Their Families Together
If your child was removed from your home because a neighbor or family member called the Children’s Division (CD) hotline, or a teacher or other mandatory reporter reported suspected child abuse, you must take steps to protect your rights as a parent.
At Flesner Wentzel, we have one goal: reunifying you with your children. We are dedicated to protecting your parental rights. Our parental rights attorneys represent parents at termination hearings to prove they are fit. In addition, we help them obtain Written Service Agreements (WSAs) or treatment plans that provide them with the opportunity to get their children back.
Protecting The Children You Love
When parents are deceased, unfit, unable, or unwilling to care for their children, nonparents, often grandparents or other family members, must step in to care for minor children.
Though you have taken over all of the primary responsibilities of caring for a child, you have no legal right to make decisions regarding his or her education, health, or general welfare without establishing guardianship.
At Flesner Wentzel, we help clients obtain guardianship over the children they love. In fact, our attorneys walk you through every step of the process to ensure you have legal rights over the minor children in your care.
We also help clients protect minor children and file termination actions when they feel parents are unfit and children’s physical and mental health are in jeopardy.
