Child Dependency Matters

We Will Fight To Get Your Child Back

Part of your job as a parent is to protect your child. However, what do you do if someone thinks that not only are you not fulfilling this role, but you are instead hurting or neglecting your child? If your child has been removed from your care or the Division of Family and Child Services (DFCS) has begun an investigation, call The Childs Law Firm for legal help. Our attorneys can help you fight these allegations and will work with you through every step of your dependency case.

When you are being investigated for abuse or neglect allegations, you need an experienced attorney to help guide you through the difficult process and put your family back together. We will walk you through all aspects of the process, including adjudication hearings to family team meetings.

In Georgia, child abuse or neglect is classified as either physical abuse, neglect or sexual abuse. Our attorneys will examine the claims against you to determine if they meet the criteria associated with the allegations against you. Understanding the claims being investigated is key to fighting your dependency case.

How Can You Challenge The Allegations?

If you have been accused of abuse or neglect, you must contact an attorney immediately. In Georgia, the juvenile hearing process moves quickly. It is crucial that an attorney is present with you at the first hearing. A successful argument at a preliminary protective hearing may result in your case being dismissed.

Should probable cause be found at the preliminary protective hearing, our attorneys will prepare to defend you and your family at the adjudication hearing. Our attorneys are prepared to guide you through every step of this difficult process. Working as a Guardian ad Litem in Cobb County Juvenile Court, Jessica Rhoades is more than familiar with every step in the dependency process.
