Pre-Apprehension Child Welfare Program

 

The first program of its kind, CLG’s Pre-Apprehension Child Welfare Program provides legal advice and support to parents/guardians who are involved with Children’s Services prior to their child(ren) being apprehended. The program is also for parents/guardians, or even expecting parents who are concerned about Children’s Services becoming involved with their family.
