A dependency and neglect case is a civil action that is often very complicated. These types of cases involve children that are not being treated appropriately by the adults who are responsible for them. Dependency and neglect cases often include an act or failure to act, on the part of a parent or caretaker, that results in death, serious physical or emotional harm, or sexual abuse, which places the child in an imminent risk of serious harm.
The attorneys at Hotz & Associates represent parents facing dependency and neglect allegations. We may also serve the role as Guardian ad Litem in certain cases. A Guardian ad Litem is an attorney for the minor child or children who advocates for the child’s best interest.
