Congratulations to Jennelle Johnson on another family reunited!

A shelter care hearing is the first hearing that occurs after the department of human services removes a child from that child’s family.  At this one, Ms. Johnson represented a parent and challenged both the government’s claims for why this child should be in foster care and why the government should have any involvement in this family at all.  Ms. Johnson completely won causing the child to be returned home and ‘temporary jurisdiction’ (the power of the Court and DHS) to be dismissed!
