Case against foster weak says lawyer

Case against foster weak says lawyer

In a recent letter, the state’s top child welfare expert — a professor of the family law law section of Rutgers University Law School — argues that a lawyer’s advice does not mean a foster child is not responsible for failing to make “the best effort to care for a child.”

Robert Smith, a family lawyer who has taught at Rutgers and others since 1976, makes the arguments in a letter that was filed in a case that will determine the fate of a fornatyasastra.commer foster child, Joshua, now 12, in the case of the family of four. The case is under a state court order to settle a custody dispute between his father and his mother. It had been set to go to trial, but Smith wants the case dismissed.

Smith wrote that when judges examine foster children, “They need to judge what the child is capable of doing and what has happened to it.” He said judges should assess a child’s capacity based on the foster parent’s own assessm우리카지노ent and “not by considering the family law or law enforcement assessment of other children in similar situations in a child’s life.”

His letter does not mention that the judge who granted the order, Daniel E. Sirois, is also a lawyer.

“I hope your attorney will look carefully into your case, including the questions that you raise with respect to the issue of foster parenting,” Smith wrote to Sirois, which was posted on the state legal ethics website the New Brunswick Law Journal.

Smith wrote that because the judge had asked him if he could speak “on behalf of the state in this matter and to remind you that a foster parent is a child in need of someone to bring them into the world and not, say, a custodian to pick up their trash,” he wanted Sirois to send him a letter explaining to him the rules.

Sirois, the lawyer in the custody case, has denied that his orders are based on anything but his professional judgments. In court filings in the case, he wrote that th
