Parental Rights & Obligations

questions & answers

Question: My sister in law recently got her rights severed, is there anyway she could get her 6month old son back? Also the foster mom who recently has my nephew has been getting money from the mother is that even legal also? Wouldn't the foster mom get in trouble for that?

Answer: If her rights were severed there was likely a trial or proceedings.  She should have been informed and then there would have been 15 days to appeal http://www.maricopa.gov/opa/dependency.aspx

If you feel that there has been some issue with the foster parent, contact the Department of Child Safety.  https://www.azdes.gov/landing.aspx?id=9471
