Child Protective Services was created to protect children from abuse, but nearly 90% of dependency cases these days are established due to “neglect”, which is vaguely defined. These policies allow for children to often be placed in foster care because their parents are poor or because a report is made by someone who does not understand the family’s culture.

Sharon Amamilo, an attorney who works with parents who are involved in CPS dependency cases will present information for parents who want to know what their rights are, what to do if CPS comes to your door or your child’s school, and what resources are available for parents and children to prevent a dependency case from being opened in the first place.
