In Home Dependency: The Agency may feel that your case needs court oversight while you attend services to address their concerns. This will allow you to keep your children in your home while you address the concerns.
Placement: Dependency that starts with a voluntary or involuntary placement would continue as a placement Dependency. This is where the court has oversight and your children are in Foster Care, Formal Kinship Care, or Informal Kinship Care. Each type of care is very different and can affect your case. The biggest benefits to your child(ren) being placed in kinship care are that visitation can be more liberally established and, if the agency ever looks to terminate your rights, you may still be allowed contact with your child(ren) by virtue of them being adopted by a friend/family member.
