Children have the right to visit with both of their parents in a case involving Children Youth and Families (CYF).
If a parent is not currently involved, the agency will try to offer the parent services and visitation to begin to form a relationship between them and the child.
The exception to these efforts would be if there was a documented account of the parent hurting the child or other children.
In a case like that, the agency would investigate what happened and see if it is reasonable to provide services while still assuring your child’s safety.
