DIRECTION OF YOUTH PROTECTION (DYP)
When the DYP (Direction of Youth Protection) detains a report about a child, it is important to be counseled in order to understand the rest of the court process. In addition, the DYP acts in accordance with the Youth Protection Act. Reporting can be done by anyone witnessing a disturbing situation where the child is in danger or their situation compromised.
During this period, parents’ collaboration with DYP representatives is the best approach possible.
The team at Colibri Lawyers can represent both parents and children in a case involving the DYP. We will accompany you and represent you in order to best defend your interests and those of your child.
