Child Welfare

Know your rights.


Has the Department of Children and Families (“DCF”) removed your children and have you failed to qualify for court appointed representation?   Are you unhappy with your court appointed attorney?

Once DCF has filed for emergency custody and the children have been placed out of the home you are entitled to an emergency hearing, within 72 hours of the removal, in the Juvenile Court in the County where you reside.  DCF’s attorneys must prove that return of the children to your custody presents an imminent risk of abuse or neglect.  The burden of proof is on DCF, not on you.  This is why you should only retain an experienced and aggressive child welfare attorney to handle the matter.
