Getting in the game early matters
Posted on by John J. Ghidini
Getting into the game early matters. What does this mean in the context of a DCF case? For relatives and grandparents getting into the game early means being aware and involved in the early stages of a DCF investigation. The early stages of a DCF investigation are a critical time. Safety agreements could be signed, mis-information could be put forth, and worse a minor relative could be put in non-relative placement. To avoid these pitfalls, relatives should get involved as soon as the parents will allow and put as much pressure on DCF to identify all family resources who could take a minor relative into their care.
