Juvenile dependency typically means that there is reason to believe that the parent/s have failed in caring for the child in a way that they need. This can result in the court determining that the child will become dependent on the court to protect the rights of the child. There are some cases in which the child can come back home to his/her parents, this is known as reunification. If the parents are unable to make their home safe or find a new home that is suitable for the child, the court will place them on a permanent plan.
