Family Reconciliation Services will complete a Family Assessment and offer support services to the family. Once the Verification of Family Assessment is completed, the parent or legal guardian has two choices:
- Engage in recommended services without proceeding on to schedule a hearing with the Juvenile Court.
- File the Family Assessment with the Pierce County Juvenile Court Clerk’s Office and request to complete an ARY petition. A court hearing will be scheduled, and paperwork provided to the parent or legal guardian to provide the required legal service to the youth.
- Please keep in mind: Families who file ARY petitions and appear in court without participating in the services offered by FRS will be re-directed to do so prior to the case proceeding further.
