The Petition requests that CFS be granted the following relief: Emergency Protective Services, Adjudication as a Youth in Need of Care and Temporary Legal Custody. A copy of the Petition is filed with the Clerk of District Court for Missoula County, (406) 258-4780, and is hereby served upon you at this time. 

The child who is the subject of the proceedings, T.J.P., was born on March 7, 2007, in Missoula, Montana. The child’s mother is Mary Grace Taylor and other names she has used include: Mary Grace Peak and Mary Grace Behner. The child’s identified putative father is Aaron James Pichette.

Broadway Missoula, Montana, then and there to show cause, if any you may have, why CFS should not be granted the relief requested in the Petition. 

NOTICE: Your failure to appear at the hearing will constitute a denial of interest in the child, which denial may result, without further notice of this proceeding or any subsequent proceeding, in judgment by default being entered for the relief requested in the Petition.
