Children & Youth Law

If you ever need to hire an attorney to defend false allegations of child abuse against you or a loved one, you need to obtain a qualified attorney who has experience handling these types of cases.

How Can We Help ?

Often I am contacted by parents who have run into issues dealing with Children and Youth Services. It is not uncommon for CYS to run roughshod over the rights of parents under the guise of protecting children. Some things to be aware of if you are contacted by CYS:

1. Just because you are contacted by CYS does not mean that you have done anything wrong even though CYS make it sound like you did. It is important to contact an attorney to make sure that you understand the process and to protect your rights.

2. You do not have to let them into your house. Sometimes a CYS representative will show up at your house and demand that you let them in to do an inspection. They may even have a police officer with them to make it seem official. Unless there is a court order or they have a warrant (which you should make them show you), they do not have the right to enter your house without your consent. Before letting them in, you should contact an attorney so that you can make sure that your rights are protected.

3. You do have rights. Unfortunately, many parents who get into the CYS system are made to feel that they do not have rights. That is not true though. Be proactive in standing up for your rights. Do not get frustrated and withdraw from the process. Work with your attorney.
