FAQ - Legal Decision Making and Parenting Time (Custody)

How can I get my children back from DCS?

If the Department of Child Safety (DCS) has removed your child from your home, you will be served with a Notice of Hearing. A court hearing will be set within 7 days. Any requests to the court must be made in writing. The local court can provide forms for dependency petitions and service, requests for review of temporary custody (only in dependency) and requests for appointment of an attorney or court interpreter. Other forms are available at local court websites and self-service centers.
