DCYF LAWYER WARWICK RI
Protecting Your Parental Rights
RI Child Dependency Lawyers
Is the State of Rhode Island attempting to take your children away? You need an experienced and competent DCYF lawyer. Our Warwick RI DCYF lawyer can help resolve the situation with the Department of Children, Youth, and their Families (DCYF). The attorneys at Moyer Law, PC represent parents and guardians in fighting for continued custody of their child.
Child Dependency and Juvenile Matters
DCYF may launch an investigation if they receive a call to their hotline. For example, DCYF often acts on accusations of child abuse, neglect, domestic violence, drug abuse or criminal activity in the home. Next, social workers, child psychologists, court-appointed child guardians and judges will weigh in on the case. They provide recommendations to DCYF and the Courts on what they believe is in the child’s best interests.
We work hard to refute allegations, especially those leveled by an ex-spouse or partner with an axe to grind. Our DCYF lawyer also gathers evidence to show that our clients have provided love, structure and basic needs to the child. And we explain how the removal from the home or revocation of visitation rights would be traumatic and harmful.
Attorney Don P. Moyer strives to keep siblings together, ideally with their parents or extended family. We make every effort to avoid removal by DCYF and a scary and uncertain future in foster care. We will also fight any attempt by the other parent to terminate parental rights.
