Foster Parent Rights

Rights to Placement of a Child: If you are a foster parent, you often have rights to participate in cases, provide information to the Court regarding a child, and to hire an attorney to advocate for what you believe to be in the best interest of a child in your care. In order to do so, you need to first petition the Court to become the De Facto Parent to that child, and once completed you can then fight parents, relatives, the social worker, or anyone else who requests that the judge take some action which is not good for your foster child. Here at Tot Law in San Diego, our Foster Parent Rights attorneys will fight for you in order to give you a voice and a say in what occurs for a child you have cared for and love deeply. We take these cases on all of the time, and we know how to give you the very best chance to succeed. Call today to speak to an attorney specializing in protecting your rights to protect the child in your care and ensure that his or her best interest is served!

Foster Care Licensing Hearings: If you are a foster parent who has had your foster care license suspended or revoked, you will need an attorney experienced in getting such licenses reinstated. These types of cases are extremely complicated and hard-fought, and there is an attorney for the state of California on the other side who is intent on taking away your passion as well as your employment. However, we have been successful in taking on these attorneys and beating them in order to get back your license, your business, and your love. Tot Law Foster Care Licensing attorneys are available to answer any questions you have on these difficult matters, and we are happy to meet with you to assess your case and to determine whether we might be able to help.
