What is a dependency or (DCF) proceeding?
A dependency proceeding is a case brought before the Court based on allegations of abuse, abandonment and/or neglect of a child. The term “dependency” is based on the idea of a child being dependent on the State or Court to provide help and services. There are many terms used when a Dependency case is opened which often confuses those who are subject to the proceedings. This can include: a shelter hearing, arraignment, adjudicatory hearing, disposition hearing, judicial review hearing and permanency hearing. You may also be approached with options of entering a case plan, which is when the parent/custodian is given the opportunity to enter into a written agreement to fulfill certain tasks that would then cause for the Court and DCF to withdraw their involvement in the case.
