Foster Parent Representation

Foster parents are a critical part of the child welfare system, yet they are underappreciated. Foster parents take abused and traumatized children and give them a family life while their parents are in a bad situation. In Wisconsin, foster parents have the right to object when the agency changes the foster child’s placement. This is a hard decision to make, because exercising that right can result in the agency responding by revoking a foster parent’s license.

If you are a foster parent and believe that you have been treated unfairly, you may have legal rights. If your license was revoked, you have a due process right to challenge that revocation to make sure that the agency followed the rules. If a child was removed from your care, you have the right to challenge the removal. You may not get that child placed back in your care, but you could get your record cleared.

Sometimes you just want information about how the system works, and you need to consult a legal expert about that. Attorney Kornblum might be able to help you with any of those things.
