Abuse/Neglect of Children

The Family Division handles cases filed by the state involving abused or neglected children. The purpose of this process is to protect children, keep families together when possible, provide assistance to parents so they can raise healthy and safe children, and to provide treatment and services to children who are placed outside their home.
