Protect your Children and Family from Unwanted State Interference - Beaverton Oregon Juvenile Lawyer
Times are changing and the government appears to be exercising more and more control over our children and families. For some families, the state's assistance is welcomed and needed. For others, the state's interference feels intrusive, unnecessary and is unwelcome.
I am attorney Shelley L. Fuller, and I am committed to helping you sort out what you or your children's rights are when the state comes into your life for any reason.
Juvenile law is broken up into two different categories. Cases where children, under the age of 18, have been accused of committing a crime (called "delinquency" cases) and cases where families are faced with State involvement by the Department of Human Services (DHS) due to allegations of abuse and neglect of their children (called "dependency" cases).
