If you have been contacted by an investigator or case worker from the Department of Social Services or Child Protective Services (CPS), it is in your best interest to have experienced legal counsel in your corner at the earliest possible opportunity. At the Brill Legal Group, our attorneys are ready to respond to any situation, emergency or otherwise, involving allegations by the government of child abuse or child neglect.
You may be involved in a situation where CPS workers are threatening to take your children away immediately. In any case involving alleged child abuse or neglect, especially with your own children, you may be too emotionally involved or distraught to rationally deal with the situation. Especially when an impersonal government bureaucrat is talking about the possibility of removing your children from the people who know best what they need, it often helps to have someone with the knowledge and the skills to intervene with child abuse case workers on your behalf. We can present your case to the authorities in a way that you might not be able to, and we will get results.
Even if your child is not removed from your home immediately, you could still find yourself facing charges in Family Court. A Family Court judge could still decide that removal is the best option, even if you disagree. And it often seems like the government holds all the cards in these situations. Investigators are even allowed to go to a school to interview a child without the parents’ knowledge.
This is why it is important to have an attorney on your side who knows the law and can aggressively represent your interests in court. Our lawyers can meet with you personally and provide a free initial consultation to discuss your situation. With offices in East Hampton, Hauppauge, Hempstead, and Manhattan, we are close to you wherever you may be.
