As a parent, it is certainly frightening to be accused of child neglect or child abuse. These serious accusations may lead to removal of your children from your home, a traumatic experience for all concerned. If you are the subject of a DCFS investigation or an Abuse and Neglect court case, it is important to work with an experienced attorney who knows how to keep families together.
Not all DCFS reports go as far as the police or a criminal case in court. However, they have the potential to get that far. So in most cases, talking to an attorney early on is a good idea. The consequences can be serious. We find that often DCFS is unorganized and their investigators don’t always play by the rules. Getting ahead of the game by having an attorney intervene can potentially solve lots of problems.
Not many attorneys focus their practice on DCFS defense. However, at A. Traub & Associates we are very familiar with DCFS rules and procedures and the Juvenile court system. DCFS has considerable authority to make life-altering decisions about you, your children, your ability to work, and even your future as a parent. An experienced attorney can make a difference in many cases. Our goal is to help preserve your relationship with your child.
