Day Care and Foster Care Licensing

Welcome to the Law Office of Jacklyn Bentley – Your Source for Getting and Keeping Your Daycare License and/or Your Foster Care License

I am an experienced attorney dedicated to providing legal support and representation in a wide range of Administrative Licensing Hearings. Serving the entire San Francisco Bay Area, I am well-versed in handling various licensing challenges. Whether you are operating a daycare out of your home, working at a daycare, or you are a foster parent, I am here to safeguard your rights and guide you through any legal issues you might have.

Daycare Licenses – Allowing You to Operate Your Dream Business:

As an attorney with experience defending daycare home licensing and workers at daycare homes, I understand the concerns and anxieties with keeping your license.  I provide legal support for individuals facing the loss of their livelihood and/or their passion in the following areas:

  • Denial of Your Application for License: If you have received a license application denial or need an “exemption” to obtain your daycare license or your license to work in a daycare facility, I know how to strategize effectively to win your case, including whether you need to appeal or obtain an alternative to denial.
  • Criminal Offenses and Professional Misconduct: If you face concerns about your daycare license due to a criminal case or professional misconduct, I will diligently advocate on your behalf to keep your license and your livelihood.
  • Provisional or Probationary Licenses: For daycare operators or workers on probation or with provisional licenses, I offer dedicated support to protect your license from potential suspension threats.  I know how hard being on probation can be, and will fight to get you through the process.

Foster Parents – Advocacy for Your Passion:

For individuals trying to become foster parents or trying to remain foster parents, I offer skilled representation and diligent defense with issues like:

  • License Application: I can help you take this final step towards your dream of helping a child in need or creating your family.  I will work hard to develop the right strategy to get your through this stressful process.
  • Criminal Offenses and Professional Misconduct: If you face concerns about keeping your license due to a criminal charge or misconduct, I can help you fight to keep your license and your family dream.
