Foster Care Review

The Law Offices of Joseph H. Nivin, P.C. is available to represent  parents and guardians in Family Court during permanency hearings. Permanency hearings are held every six months beginning 60 days after the child is removed from the care of his parents or guardians. Experienced child lawyers can make the difference whether the child is removed:

  • During the course of child protective proceedings
  • For juvenile delinquency cases
  • Voluntarily

The permanency hearing will help to determine a plan for permanent residence of the child. It answers the questions:

  • Should the child’s placement in foster care continue?
  • If so, what goals does the foster care agency have to give permanency to the child?
  • Did the agency make reasonable efforts to achieve the previously determined permanency goal?

Before entering private practice, Attorney Joseph H. Nivin represented the New York City Administration for Children’s Services in numerous Family Court cases. His expertise in this area helps to ensure that respondents in Foster Care Review cases receive fair treatment and respect for their due process rights. When it’s time for you to participate in a permanency hearing, call The Law Offices of Joseph H. Nivin, P.C. to receive expert advice and solid representation.
