Webinar on the SJC’s Game-Changing Decision in Care and Protection of Rashida

October 12 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Webinar on the SJC’s Game-Changing Decision in Care and Protection of Rashida

On the heels of the SJC’s watershed decision in Care and Protection of Walt comes what many were calling Walt II until the decision came down as Care and Protection of Rashida.  After years of fighting for judges to hear reasonable efforts motions, the SJC came through for Massachusetts families and issued this game-changing decision.  So what now?  Come hear about Rashida and why it is game-changing from Attorneys Ann O’Connor and William Comeau, who represented Rashida and her mother in the SJC.  They will review the decision and provide practical tips on how to use it to force DCF to do their job and make reasonable efforts to reunify families.  They will explain how the decision builds on Ann’s success in Walt, and says that parents and children can challenge DCF’s failure to make reasonable efforts and request remedial orders any time in the case.  We will learn how to frame challenges to reasonable efforts to get the most for our clients and support reunification of families.
