The DCG Involvement in Child Abuse Cases

If you have been accused of child abuse, the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF) may be getting involved. When it comes to these types of charges, your future and the future of your family could be on the line. If the DCF determines that you are no longer able to care for your children, they have the capacity to remove them from your care and place them with another parent, family member or in foster care.

The DCF will investigate charges of:

  • Child abuse
  • Sex crimes involving children
  • Child neglect
  • Crimes involving children

If you have already been contacted by the DCF, do not attempt to deal with them without speaking to an attorney first. Refrain from signing any documents, including consent forms, service plans or waivers until your lawyer has looked them over. Keegan Law, PA is here to provide you with sound advice during this difficult time and can make sure you avoid taking any actions that harm your case.

Divorce & Child Abuse Cases

It is not uncommon for a couple going through a divorce to become bitter and angry, especially if a custody battle is involved. An ex-spouse may accuse the other of child abuse in order to gain custody of the children or to “get back” at the other parent. Sadly, many accusations of child abuse are unfounded. That is why we are here to protect you from false claims.

If you get a letter from the DCF supporting a 51A, we can help you file for a fair hearing within 30 days of its receipt. Remember to keep in line with your service plan until your case is settled. We will keep fighting for your rights until your case is closed. Speak to us as soon as possible to allow us time to form your defense.
