Child Dependency Case Plan

Generally, child welfare laws and services are set up to help keep families together. However, there are numerous cases where children may wrongly remain out of their parents care because the Department of Child Services believes that the child is not safe under the supervision of their parent(s).

To help reunite families, the court offers “reunification plans” or case plans which include tasks and recommendations for the parents to follow in order to bring families back together.

Below is an example of how a case plan is set up.
