In the Matter of JP, FH# 2017-0705

Nicholas Holahan
Reversed - DCF did not have a reasonable cause to support a finding of neglect because the children did not observe the physical confrontation between Appellant father and his wife. There was no evidence the Appellant failed to provide minimally adequate supervision or emotional stability and growth during the alleged confrontation. Missed medical appointments and immunizations for the children were not sufficient for a finding for neglect, as future appointments were scheduled at the time of the 51B response.
