Arizona Family Law Attorney Helps Clients with Juvenile Dependency Proceedings in Scottsdale and Phoenix, AZ

At the Law Office of Karen A. Schoenau, we help siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, or other family members through private dependency proceedings in Scottsdale. Through a juvenile private dependency proceeding, an individual, usually a family member of the minor child, seeks the assistance of Child Court to determine if a child needs a proper parental figure. Our juvenile dependency lawyer in Scottsdale is prepared to guide you through the process.

A child may need a dependency if:

  • There is no parent or guardian.
  • There is no parent or guardian willing or capable of exercising care and control over the child.
  • The child is not being provided with the necessities of life, including adequate food, clothing, shelter, or medical care.
  • The child’s home is unfit by reason of abuse, neglect, cruelty, or depravity by a parent, a guardian, or any other person having custody or care of the child.

If any of the above conditions exist the child will generally become of a ward of the state unless there is a family member willing to become their guardian.
