Sometimes people find themselves, or their family members, in a situation where they are under investigation because of allegations of child neglect or child abuse. In more extreme cases, the children may be removed from the home by the County and placed with a relative or in foster care.
This can be the result of a contingent criminal proceeding such as an order of protection or DWI with a child in the car, or, in other cases, this is the result of a phone call to child protective services (CPS) by a mandatory reporter, such as the child’s school or therapist where there is the reasonable belief that the child is in danger of harm.
If the report is founded, the child can be removed from the home until the parent/guardian performs mandatory rehabilitation as prescribed by the court. When this happens, whether you are the accused, or someone hoping to step in as a temporary guardian for the child, contacting an experienced Family Court Lawyer is imperative.
