Families in Need of Services

The Families in Need of Services (FINS) became effective in all courts exercising juvenile jurisdiction on July 1, 1994 as Title VII of the Louisiana Children's Code.  This process enables the juvenile court to coordinate community services to assist and reinforce the family in an effort to prevent delinquency and family disintegration. The goals of FINS are to reduce formal juvenile court involvement while determining appropriate services to benefit the child and improve family relations.

GOALS OF FAMILIES IN NEED OF SERVICES

  • Try to prevent delinquency and the need for formal court proceedings

  • Try to keep your child in some kind of educational arena

  • Get a better idea of what you are dealing with as a family and intervene only if necessary
