The DYP removes a baby from his parents in the hospital: our lawyer intervenes
A very young couple are parents of a first child when the unthinkable happens: the DYP comes to take the baby to the hospital shortly after birth and places him in foster care. Reasons given: parents who are very young, too inexperienced and who do not understand how to take care of a child.
Our lawyer Virginie Bourgeois-Plante receives the mandate to defend this family the day before the hearing before the judge.
She called both parents to testify, then engaged in solid cross-examination of the social worker from the DYP in order to demonstrate that she was too quick to jump to conclusions, that she did not verify the facts or even met the parents to find out their point of view! Our lawyer produced photos of the baby’s future room and other documents.
The judge decided that these parents should recover their child immediately: the same evening the child was home.
