Navigating the juvenile court system is confusing and difficult without an experienced attorney to explain the process to you. You need an attorney to advocate for you both in and outside the courtroom when trying to protect what is most important to you – your children.
Involvement in a juvenile court case can begin in several ways, including contact with child protective services, children being removed from your home, a child being criminally charged, an allegation of a Termination of Parental Rights. A Termination of Parental Rights can also be raised in a divorce or paternity case and can be transferred to juvenile court in some circumstances.
Lustgarten & Roberts attorneys are experienced in the following juvenile court areas:
- Termination of Parental Rights
- Delinquency (juvenile criminal cases)
Your attorney will meet with you for an initial conference to go over details of your case, attend juvenile court hearings, gather information necessary to defend you or your child, prepare responses and formal court pleadings on your behalf, and keep you informed every step of the way.
Our attorneys have succeeded in defending parents in Termination of Parental Rights hearings and assisting parents whose children have been removed from their home to reunification and case closure. We have seen cases all the way through to the Nebraska Court of Appeals and Supreme Court.
