Child Welfare Appellate Division

IADD's Child Welfare Appellate Defense serves all counties except counties along the Wasatch Front and Washington County (i.e.3rd-6th class counties). Both staff appellate attorneys, experienced in representing parents, and contract attorneys represent parents and guardians in participating counties seeking to directly appeal court decisions to terminate parental rights that if not challenged can permanently separate a child from parents.
"[T]he interest of parents in the care, custody, and control of their children, is perhaps the oldest of the fundamental liberty interests recognized by this Court."

Troxel v. Granville, 530 U.S. 57, 65 (2000)
