Child In Need Of Services Cases

CHINS, or child in need of services, is the type of case in Indiana where a child is removed involuntarily from their parent(s) due to drug or child abuse, violence or neglect. The goal of these cases is reunification of the family; however, a parent can have their rights involuntarily terminated, meaning that they can completely and permanently lose their right to see their child(ren) ever again. If you are involved in a CHINS case, it is a very good idea for you to have legal representation to help you work through the system to get your child(ren) back.
