Neglect: A court may deem a parent as “unfit” to care for a child, if there is a finding that the parent neglected a child’s welfare, health, and/or environment. In extreme cases of neglect, a child may be removed by Child Protective Services and may be placed into foster care.
Endangerment: A court may issue protective orders when family violence has occurred. The protective orders may be designed to prevent further acts of violence; communication between the parties; proximity to a person, their residence or work; possession of a firearm; and other activities related to endangerment.
