Defending Parents Against Allegations Of Neglect And Abuse
The Connecticut Department of Children and Families (DCF) has the power to remove children from their homes and the custody of parents. It may do so when agency personnel believe a child has been subjected to physical abuse or neglect.
While abuse and neglect unquestionably occur in some households, sometimes the information DCF acts upon is false or fabricated. In other cases, the agency can perceive minor physical injuries (that all children periodically suffer) to be signs of abuse.
As a parent with custodial rights, you have the ability to contest DCF actions. If you are being investigated by DCF or if a DCF social worker wants to talk with you, do not hesitate getting legal representation. Steps can be taken in the early stages of a case to protect a parent’s rights, and by taking prompt action it may be possible to persuade DCF to drop the investigation.
