Legal Question in Family Law in Georgia
Can DFCS and CPS claim medical neglect if a parent doesn't vaccinate for religious beliefs? The mother has taken the child to the doctor for check-ups, a diaper rash, two separate ear infections, and had the child on WIC.

No, a parent has the right to decide whether or not to vaccinate a child. I would suggest the child have annual well checkups in case an issue comes up in the future. If so, you would be able to show other health care was being responsibly taken care of.
