Visiting Your Family

According to ACS, you have the right to visit:

  • at least every week with your parents or the person whom you will be discharged to
  • more often if you are going home soon
  • in private (except if a judge says the visits must be supervised, usually for the child's protection)
  • The agency must give your family money to get to and from visits.

If you want to visit your family more often, call your lawyer or send your lawyer a letter.
