The aim of a Georgia dependency case is to uncover if the child is dependent. If a child is dependent, this means that the parent or guardian is unable to adequately care for the child.
In these cases, the Department of Family and Children Services (DFCS) may become involved. On one side of the case is a concerned individual and the DFCS, hoping to guard a child from further abuse. On the other side is a parent, fighting to keep custody of their child.
No matter what side you find yourself on, seeking the guidance of an experienced family law attorney is important. In order to achieve maximal results, you need someone who understands the legal intricacies of these cases.
