The Vermont Judiciary has developed information for parents involved in the Family Court Process.
A CHINS case has a very predictable pathway. Any parent involved in a CHINS should ask her attorney to go through each of the hearings, what happens and what they can do to be prepared for each one. A typical Juvenile Proceeding Flowchart can be downloaded here. For more information developed by the Family Court go to: http://www.vermontjudiciary.org/GTC/Family/Juvenile.aspx.
