A client’s victory against Youth Protection Department
We were mandated in a youth protection file in January 2018 in order to order the children (two children 5 and 7 years old) to stay with our client. We received jugement in January 2018 in favour of our client by consent between the parties.
Several months later, the youth protection took the minor children directly from school and implemented the minor children in a shelter. They further introduced an emergency motion in court asking that the minor children, on a provisional basis, reside in a foster family until the judge hears the file on the merits.
Our client contests this and asked that the minor children return under the maternal care.
After proceeding, the court granted the request of our client and returned the minor children home. In the jugement, the judge expressed that there was no necessity for the intervention of the youth protection at this stage and that there is no serious prejudice for the minor children.
Not all Madam Vallelonga’s client succeed in challenging Youth Protection’s decisions. See notice.
