If your family has become involved with Child Protective Services or the foster care system, you might have questions about your rights. ACLU does NOT get involved in these sorts of cases, because everyone involved in the Juvenile Court System or charged with a crime has a right to an appointed attorney. We have prepared this 4-page brochure with information to help you and your family, including information about how to get a free attorney if you can't afford to hire your own.
