Arizona's child welfare system is a maze of overlapping state and private agencies governed by state and federal statutes, agency rules and procedures, and case law. The Department of Child Safety (DCS) is the primary agency charged with the protection of vulnerable youth. If biological parents are unable or unwilling to parent a child, DCS intervenes to provide protection for that child.
The Christian Goodman team offers years of experience in DCS policy making and in representing multiple parties in Juvenile Court proceedings. We have a deep understanding of state and federal child welfare laws and are sympathetic to the emotional challenges in this highly sensitive area of law.
Our Juvenile Law services include representation of foster parents who are seeking to adopt a child in their care or who are dealing with licensing or credentialing disputes, grandparents’ rights, termination of parental rights, guardianship, and adoption.
