Nuts and Bolts: Filing a Private CHIPS Petition in Juvenile Court
Join us for lunch and a CLE program that will cover the basic procedures and considerations of filing a Child in Need of Protection or Services (CHIPS) Petition on behalf of a private person. While most child protection matters are filed by or on behalf of the County Child Welfare Agency, the law in Minnesota allows private individuals to initiate CHIPS cases in Juvenile Court. This program will offer a practical guide to considerations to think about before filing such an action, and a discussion of the process of how to go about initiating a private child protection matter once you have decided to do so. Practice tips and forms will be included in the materials. The presenters include a private attorney and an assistant Washington County Attorney for perspectives and guidance from both sides of the public/private divide.
