Hello and thank you for joining me today! My name is Kevin Seaver and I am a trusted lawyer since 1991. Successfully specializing in fighting the Department of Children and Families, or commonly referred to as DCF throughout the entire state of Massachusetts.
Today I wanna talk about Domestic Violence and DCF. Peter (not his real name) went out and had some drinks with his friends. When he got home, his wife woke up and they got into a disagreement. She called the police. Next thing you know, the police are knocking on the door and they separate the two of them; they speak to Peter and they speak to his wife. They smelled alcohol on Peter’s breath and arrested him and took him down to the police station. Now he is facing criminal charges.
That night, their 3 children were upstairs in bed asleep. DCF wants to speak with Peter, but do you allow him to? So now, Peters got a dilemma. He’s got criminal charges against him where he has the 5th amendment right against self-incrimination and he also has DCF who wants to talk to him. What does he do?
Mother, on the other hand, is in her own dilemma. DCF is gonna pressure her, possibly, to take out a restraining order, despite the fact that she told them “I’m not in fear or imminent fear of harm of Peter”. If the mother speaks to DCF, everything she tells DCF is gonna go to the District Attorney who is looking to prosecute Peter. If Peter talks to DCF, they are also gonna relay that information to the District Attorney.
Peter has a 5th Amendment Right against self-incrimination. What is Peter and Mother to do about DCF and the criminal case? Call me. Call Attorney Seaver now at area code (617) 263-2633. We can help you successfully fight DCF. Thank you.
