                      40th CIRCUIT COURT

                    CHILD PROTECTION PROCEEDINGS


 
 
     


Child Protection Proceedings
 
The Circuit Court Family Division has jurisdiction over cases in which children under the age of 18 found within Lapeer County are physically or mentally abused or environmentally neglected by their parents or parental figures.

The Court has the right to remove children from their families and place them elsewhere or remove parents from the home to maintain a child's safety while the case is proceeding.

The Court has authority over parents of these children, and can obtain jurisdiction over the other adults who affect the health, safety and morals of such children.

If the claims are found (by jury/non-jury) trial or plea to be true, the Court determines a rehabilitative treatment plan to be followed to assure the child's safety in the home.  If the statutory grounds exist for termination, the Court may terminate a parent's rights to a child following notice and hearing.

Child protective cases are investigated, prosecuted, serviced and managed by the Children's Protective Services of Department of Human Services.
