Questions about the juvenile dependency system and your rights as a foster parent? Cohn Slater can help answer them.
We represent foster parents as they evaluate the potential adoption of the children placed in their care.
Our attorneys will help you navigate the legal transition of foster children into your family. We can explain your pre- and post-adoption rights, assist in securing the termination of parental rights of biological parents for children in open dependency cases, and help to finalize the adoption of foster children in your care.
While at DCF, Diana Cohn helped make dozens of foster children available for adoption by terminating the parental rights of their biological parents.
Likewise, Dwight Slater helped to secure foster children’s availability for adoption by defending termination of parental rights orders on appeal.
