Description

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports "Parents in Beaver County whose children are put in foster care face a big problem: The county's Children and Youth Services and the courts end parents' legal rights twice as quickly as the national average -- especially when the children are infants... Attorneys who represent clients in Beaver County also have complained that the court and CYS are too closely connected, and they point to instances in which CYS workers have had improper, out-of-court communications with judges... The majority of cases in Beaver County might have turned out exactly the same even if CYS and the courts had not ignored parents' civil rights and state and federal regulations."
