CT: Some lawyers say child welfare system violates parents’ rights (Opinion)
Day – September 02, 2017
For years, the state Department of Children and Families under Commissioner Joette Katz has worked to change the way it does business, removing fewer children from their homes and placing those it must take with relatives or other people they know. But advocates and lawyers say those changes don’t address a Juvenile Court system that is stacked against parents trying to keep their children. They’d like to see open court proceedings and improved legal representation for parents, among other changes.
