PMC will be sharing information on Family Court (Dependency, Divorce, Child Custody & Support) on Thursday, March 25th at 6:30 PM on Zoom.
When it comes to the topic of parents and children going to court, better knowledge of the court system and your rights help prepare you for the justice system and for any of its outcomes. Dependency refers to whether the caregiver is serving as an adequate guardian for a "dependent" or child. The Child Custody portion discussed disputes between parents and/or other caregivers over their rights to a child's custody. The Child Support portion provides insight into the legal responsibilities of parents in supporting their children.
