Utah Paternal Defense
Has DCFS (Child Family Services) Removed Children?
Has DCFS removed one or more of your children from your home or accused you of child abuse, child neglect or dependency (when a child runs away from home)? If so, we can help you through this difficult time for you and your family. We are experienced in fighting for your rights against DCFS.
Your parental rights are one of your most cherished constitutional rights. The right to raise your family free of government influence and control is essential to your right to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. When the state challenges your parental rights, you have a right to an attorney, if you cannot afford one, one will be appointed to you. All too often the appointed counsel are overworked and run each case through the system as quickly as possible. Our office will take the time to give your case the attention that it needs and ensure that your parental rights are not trampled on.
We realize that, as a parent, you would do anything to preserve your family and your right to parent your child. We will take whatever time is needed to navigate you through the system and ensure that your rights are protected, and ensure you receive the services necessary for the return of your children (and only those services that are necessary). It is a careful balance between the rights of the parents and state’s interest in the rights of the children. You need an experienced attorney outside of the state system to give defend your rights and keep the competing interest in balance.
Too often in the midst of a divorce one parent will attempt to use the Division of Child and Family Services (DCFS) against the other parent to gain an advantage in a custody battle. Our experienced attorneys can help you know if and when you should involve DCFS in your custody case and defend against any false allegations made by your ex-partner.
