The DCYF Case Process

DCYF receives anonymous tips from their hotline that prompts them to investigate a family.

These tips may include suspicion of:

  • Child abuse
  • Neglect
  • Domestic violence
  • Illicit substances
  • Other criminal behavior

Often, these complaints come from disgruntled former spouses or partners. DCYF will consult a team of child psychologists, social workers, court-appointed child guardians, and judges on their evaluation of the safety of the child's current home environment and parental care.

If you are under investigation, you should retain an attorney from Moyer Law, PC. We can work tirelessly to repudiate every accusation by providing proof of your care and love for your child.

Hire a Compassionate Attorney

Removing a child from their home or revoking visitation rights can cause irrevocable trauma for the child and parent or guardian alike. Our Rhode Island DCYF attorneys strive to keep families intact by doing everything in our power to avoid the volatility of foster care. Our number one priority is ensuring your family’s well-being.

If you are facing the extreme stress of a DCYF investigation, you need the guidance of our 20+ years of experience at Moyer Law, PC.

Hear From Our Clients

5 / 5 stars
“Attorney Don Moyer is the best! I hope we (my wife & I) never need his services again, but if we do we would definitely use him again. Don represented us against the State of RI and won our DCYF case. Don was very easy to talk to, flexible and had reasonable fees (Moyer Law didn't "break the bank"). We would highly recommend Moyer Law, if the need arises choose the best.”
