Will the child be removed from their family?
Ozaukee County Department of Human Services strives to keep families together. We serve most children and families in the family home. In cases where there is a safety concern, it may be necessary to remove children from their home. Court action is necessary whenever a child is removed from the parental home. In removal situations, Wisconsin State Statues guide child protection actions by setting forth legal responsibilities for case practice.

If you have questions, please contact Human Services.
