Know this Term when Dealing with DHR or CPS in Child Custody!

We lawyers are bad on terminology, but DHR may be even worse. You hear terms like Safety Plan and ISP and we're gonna go over those if we haven't already. But today, let's look at "protective capacity" and what that means in the context of dealing with DHR or in any #ChildCustody case. ~ Whether it's typical, day to day parenting, or maybe some responsible or irresponsible marijuana use, or, in more dire circumstances, whether someone is the victim of domestic violence or other abuse. That can reflect on your "protective capacity" from the Court's, and especially DHR's, perspective. ~ #parenting #familylaw
