There is nothing that requires a child's removal from the home. Whether that occurs requires a determination as to whether the child is endangered and that the removal is necessary for the child's welfare.

In most cases, if the child is very young, I would expect the child would be removed pending an emergency hearing on the CHIPS case.

Hello. A child may be removed by the local child welfare authority when the child is in a situation of danger. The full facts would need to be known in order to provide a legal opinion. The person in need is welcome to contact me. Generally, know that: Some attorneys are available seven days for emergency legal needs. Many attorneys will speak initially at no charge. Then, if legal work is performed, some attorneys will provide a reduced fee for financial hardship. Some attorneys may also assist you in a limited scope manner to conserve legal costs. All the best.
