What is the role of the Marathon County Office of Corporation Counsel?

The Office of Corporation Counsel provides legal representation to the Marathon County Department of Social Services by prosecuting cases involving the termination of parental rights (TPR) under Chapter 48, Wis. Stats. If appropriate, these cases are prosecuted on behalf of the Marathon County Department of Social Services after it has been determined by the Court the child is in need of protection or services and a parent has failed to meet conditions for the safe return of the child to his or her care, among other grounds as set forth in Chapter 48. The Office of Corporation Counsel does not participate in adoptions.
