Dependency (General)

Your Guidance Through Dependency Court

In Florida, Dependency Courts handle matters of child custody when there are accusations of violence, neglect, abandonment, or other abuse in the household. When the Florida Department of Children and Families suspects that abuse may be taking place, a child can be placed in a foster home, in the custody of relatives, or other care at the state’s discretion. Dependency Courts aim to protect children and ensure that they are placed somewhere safe and their caregivers have the support they need.
