When you wake up every day, and do everything a normal parent does you know that you’re doing your best as a parent. You show your child love, attention, support and give them all the resources that you can think of to put them in the best position that you can.
You provide them with a loving home, and all the necessities to have a good, healthy, and safe life. You live this life day-to-day to give your children the best life possible for themselves. Nobody can imagine the shock that a parent feels when they receive notice from DCF that their either neglecting and/or abusing their children.
False allegations can come in many different ways, so don’t only have the mindset that DCF false allegations will only look once certain way. There are probably a thousand things running through your head right now. How could they say these things? How could people actually believe that you were capable of treating your children like this?
The most important thing to do when you’re unexpectedly thrown into this situation is to remain calm and understand that there are proper steps that you should take. The first is to not talk to anybody before contacting a DCF lawyer that specializes in DCF cases. It’s important to know that as a parent you should protect yourself and your children and maximize your 5th amendment right. Once you contact your DCF lawyer, they will guide you through steps that will help you to show that DCF allegations are false.
The best way to shut down any signs of false allegations is by showing evidence. Evidence is the key to proving that the allegations made against you are completely false. Some common ways that parents will show that DCF allegations are false include medical records, testimonies from professionals such as therapists, teachers and doctors.
It’s important to get as much evidence as you can to show the true story of events that lead you and your family to the position, you’re in now. Many times, retrieving all the evidence needed to dispute a false allegation is tedious, and will take a significant amount of time; however, it is completely and utterly necessary. Remember that you have a right to protect your family, and evidence to show your true story is the best way to fight against false allegations by DCF.
