A Child In Need of Services ("CHINS"), is a child that has been adjudicated to be in need of care, guidance, counseling, structure, supervision, treatment, or rehabilitation. To name a few, this can also include children who have missed more than the allotted amount of absences from school; a child that habitually disobeys their parents commands and is ungovernable; or even a runaway child. A "Delinquent Act", defined by O.C.G.A. § 15-11-2(19), is an act committed by a child that is designated as a crime by the laws of the state of Georgia, or the laws of another state if the act occurred in that state. Either one of these could potentially lead to your child being placed in YDC. You will need an attorney to help protect your rights as a parent and your child's rights.
