Season 02, Episode 04: The Case Plan - In and Out of Court

At the end of our last episode, one of our two cases ended when the court dismissed it after concluding the child was not neglected. But in our other case, the case where the children were living with their parents in a van in the woods without adequate shelter, food, and hygiene and were exposed to their parent’s domestic violence, the children were adjudicated neglected and the court entered a dispositional order. That order placed the children with their grandmother, set a visitation schedule for the parents and children, and required the parents to cooperate with the department in case planning, complete certain assessments, and participate in domestic violence counseling. In today’s episode we’ll hear from county department social workers and attorney, a parent attorney, a child’s guardian ad litem, and district court judges to learn about  the next steps that happen in the case – both in court and out of court.  You’ll be introduced to five new terms: case planning, reasonable efforts, kinship and nonkinship placements, review hearing, and permanency planning.
