Case #50 Children taken over by the Child Protective Services without reaching out to their relatives

Vulnerable group: children
Human rights area: #childrensrights 

Mr. G. reached out to us after the three under-aged children of his uncle where taken by DGASPC Bihor after their mother's death and their father's disappearance. Mr. G. lives abroad and he tried to contact DGASPC Bihor in order to obtain more information about the children because he was not contacted regarding the children and was not asked if he wanted to take the children into care. His request was denied because he could not prove that he is a relative of the children. Mr. G. received no guidance on how to prove it or how to start the legal proceedings in this matter. He is worried about the children's health and life, and he is suspecting serious infringements on children's rights.

Pro Bono Attorney Octavian Bochiș (Bihor Bar Association) has taken over the case and is offering legal assistance to Mr. G. in order for him to start the legal proceedings to take the children into his care.
