These are a few questions that people unfamiliar with Family Preservation ask
Q: What is Family Preservation?
A: Family Preservation identifies a child's own home as the safe and permanent living situation toward which CPS services are directed, without removing the child from the home. It also means maintaining good relations (legally) after divorce or during child custody proceedings, also known as equal parenting.
Q: Why should I be concerned about
Family Preservation and Parental Rights?
A: According to parentalrights.org: "The right of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their children is presently a fundamental but implied right guaranteed by the United States Constitution. Yet one of the main reasons that parental rights are in danger today is due to their status as implied rights. That's because the meaning of an implied right is never entirely stable. Since parental rights are implied rights, the Court is free to redefine their meaning whenever it wishes. With international law poised to reposition parental rights into mere responsibilities, essentially robbing parents of their rightful place in a child’s life, the parental role and child-parent relationship is more endangered than ever before."
