Print What Parents Need to Know

What is the process of the Administration for Children’s Services (ACS)? What rights do you have if you’re an incarcerated and what steps should you take in the process?

The Administration for Children’s Services (ACS) is a New York City agency responsible for protecting children and has the power to remove children from parents in cases of abuse or neglect. If you are an incarcerated parent, there are important steps that you need to take and rights you have when dealing with ACS. This booklet goes over the steps you should take to help keep your parental rights.

In the spring of 2018, CUP teamed up with Bronx Defenders, the Brooklyn Defender Services, and designers from the Manuel Miranda Practice (MPP) to create What Do Incarcerated Parents Need to Know About ACS, an illustrated informational booklet.

This pamphlet was produced in order to explain what the ACS process is and what incarcerated parents should do in order to insure the best results for both themselves and their children.
