What Does Juvenile Dependency Mean?
Juvenile dependency is a specialized area of the law. There is a juvenile dependency court and that’s where the department of Children and Family Services bring legal actions against parents. And those actions allege abuse, neglect or abandonment of their children. If so, then they have a right to take the action to court, to see about protecting those children. Likewise, the parents have a right to have council and to defend against accusations made against them.
