Family Reunification with your child(ren) most likely is an emotional time. Reuniting with your child(ren) may take some time (usually 4-6 months or longer depending on the case), and will involve steps to be fully reunited. The courts and child protective services (and other agencies) may be involved in your case, and the ultimate goal is to reunite you and your child(ren). At the time you reach reunification, you have hopefully been through all the mandated recommendations from the court and/or other agencies and are ready to have visitation with your child(ren). My role is to make sure the child(ren) are safe and ready to have visitation with the parent(s).
The following six steps follow the recommendations of many court and child Welfare agencies. All cases are unique however and will be tailored to your needs. These are simply guidelines.
**Please note, this process above is the GENERIC rule, EVERY case/individual/family dynamics is different and will be treated as such. Karen Wood, LMHC treats each case individually. If you have questions about your specific process/case, please call or email us.
