Juvenile Dependency
Marnique Oliver, Attorney at Law, LLC offers legal services to minors, their parents and any relevant third-party. If you have a juvenile dependency challenge, you need the assistance of our dedicated and skilled legal counsel to emerge with a fair and just result. Juvenile dependency cases are centered on the suspicion that a child’s basic needs are not met. Whether you are accused of failing to tend to such needs, abusing a child or putting a child in harm’s way, we can help clear your name. Alternatively, if you are a minor living in Washington, Jefferson, Toombs, Candler, Emanuel county or surrounding counties and feel as though your basic needs are not being met by your guardians, contact us today for assistance.

Dependency and neglect cases are civil actions brought by the Social Services/Human Services department or another adult when there is a suspicion a child is neglected or abused. The Court will designate an individual to serve as a guardian ad litem to represent the child’s best interests.
