Your Rights in Dependency Court
A dependency is a claim by the state or a third party that a parent is unfit or unable to care for their child or children. The Department of Child Services (DCS) is usually the party who requests the state file a dependency petition to remove the children from the custody of the parents. DCS may request removal based upon suspected physical abuse, sexual abuse, mental abuse, abandonment, parent’s substance abuse, neglect or the parents’ inability to control the child.
