Juvenile Law Issues: Allow Our Firm To Help You Protect Your Child

Despite your best efforts, you and your children may find yourselves on the wrong side of the law. Whether your child has been charged with a crime or you are facing accusations of child abuse or neglect, call on The Childs Law Firm. Our attorneys have the experience and skills to defend you and your family with any juvenile law matters.

With 50 years of combined experience, our attorneys understand Georgia’s complex Division of Family & Children Services (DFCS) Child Protective Services regulations as well as the juvenile criminal justice system. We use this knowledge to fight for the best possible outcome for your family.

We understand there is nothing more worrisome for you as a parent than the well-being and safety of your child. If your child is convicted of a crime, the impact can derail their future. We will explore and pursue every legal option to minimize the negative impact on your child.

Keeping Your Family Together

Are you being questioned by DFCS? Has your child been removed from your care due to allegations of abuse or neglect? Your child’s teacher, school nurse or doctor are required to report possible signs of abuse to DFCS Child Protective Services. But accusations do not mean you don’t have a right to challenge the charges and protect your rights as a parent or caregiver. Our attorneys can work with you on your dependency case. We stand by you through the entire process, which can include adjudication hearings and family team meetings.

We understand there are myriad circumstances for abuse and neglect allegations, including:

  • False accusations
  • Something other than child abuse causing an injury
  • Religious beliefs
  • Munchausen syndrome by proxy
  • The right to discipline

Someone reporting child abuse or neglect is generally looking out for the child, but they do not always have all the facts. Our attorneys fully investigate your case to gather all the facts and, together with you, decide the best course of action.
