Guide to the Child Welfare System
We are pleased to share with you A Family's Guide to the Child Welfare System,
a comprehensive resource that answers many of the questions families
face when they become involved with the child welfare system.
Written in a simple, question-and-answer format, and grounded in the
experiences of families and child welfare professionals from across the
country, A Family's Guide is meant to be a tool to help families learn
- experiences other families have had with the child welfare system;
- child welfare laws and policies that influence the actions and decisions of child welfare workers and courts;
- people families will meet, the service systems they work in, and their roles with families;
- ways to advocate for their family's rights (their own and their children's);
- responsibilities of parents involved with the child welfare system; and
- practical tips from other parents.

Grounds for Termination of Parental Rights State by State
Permanent termination of parental rights has been described as "the family law equivalent of the death penalty in a criminal case."
In re Smith (1991), 77 Ohio App.3d 1, 16, 601 N.E.2d 45, 54. Therefore,
parents "must be afforded every procedural and substantive protection
the law allows."

ABUSE SYNDROME By Karin Huffer M.S., MFT
to Survive Allegations of Child Abuse
| Represent Yourself in Court: How to Prepare and Try a Winning Case (Paperback)
by Paul Bergman (Author), Sara
J. Berman-Barrett (Author), Lisa Guerin (Author) "This book provides the
information you need to prepare for trial and represent yourself in court..."
From Library Journal- The
nuts and bolts of self-representation in court are presented in this
detailed, sensible book. The authors describe the legal process from
the investigation of the case through the collection of a judgment,
with an emphasis on what happens in the courtroom. Bergman and
Berman-Barrett share the procedures and methods a lay person needs to
survive in an environment that is not necessarily friendly to
nonattorneys. Understanding that in the law the devil is in the
details, they take pains to avoid oversimplification, and they do an
equally good job of illuminating concepts like burden of proof and
procedures like marking and identifying exhibits. The authors highlight
important information with icons that alert the reader to a practical
suggestion, warn of a potential problem, or refer to other resources on
the subject. Highly recommended for even modest legal self-help
collections, including those that already own Robert Schachner's How
and When To Be Your Own Lawyer (LJ 3/1/ 93). Joan Pedzich, Harris, Beach & Wilcox, Rochester, N.Y. Copyright 1994 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
