Has ACS accused you of Abuse or Neglect - Family Law Attorney

  • Family Lawyers

We are a Brooklyn Family Law and General Practice Firm serving all of New York City and we represent parents on abuse and/or negelct cases. It causes great horror for a parent when the Administration for Children's Services(ACS) accuses you of abuse or neglect and perhaps brings you to Court for a child protective proceeding.

The horror increases when the Court decides that your child or children should be removed from your home pending a judicial determination of your conduct with your children. Here the Family Court will decide if you abused or neglected your children, if your children will still live with you or where your children will go if they cannot stay with you. The horror increases when the Court decides that your child or children should be removed from your home pending a judicial determination of your conduct with your children.

If you expect your child/children to come home to you, you will need to make plans for your child/children and make the environment at home a safe one for your children to live. The thought of losing a child is an overwhelming one. I have the experience that can guide you through this tough process. I will fight for your rights if your children are taken from you.

Prior to placing your child in foster care I will make sure that ACS makes its best efforts to look for relatives to take care of your child or children prior to placing them in foster care. I will apprise ACS of any available relatives you may have that could possibly take your children and prevent foster care placement . Finally, during the Court process, I will fight for your right to visit your children in foster care and ask for more visits on your behalf if necessary. I will help you through this long and arduous process. I will do my best to keep your children in your home or return your children to you.

My fees are reasonable, so do not let money stop you from calling me.
