Child protection cases arise when social services become involved with families due to allegations of child neglect, child abuse or truancy. Allegations of child abuse and neglect can turn families’ worlds upside down, especially if the child is removed from the home. If you or someone you know is facing such allegations, legal counsel is imperative to your case.
Once the petition has been filed, social services is required to conduct an investigation and make a determination whether the allegations are true. It’s important to act quickly. We will thoroughly review the allegations in order to give our clients the best possible chance of success in their child protection cases. Although the allegations may be false, it may still be necessary to go to court to prove it. We will advocate for you and your child, ensure you understand your rights and what’s happening, and outline options as your case develops.
