Thanks for joining me here today. My name is Kevin Seaver and I’m a trusted lawyer since 1991 recognized expert, successfully specialized in fighting the Department of Children and Families more commonly referred to as DCF throughout the entire state of Massachusetts, turning negatives into positives in and out of court.
I want to talk to you today about do it yourself-ers.
We all know them, we all see them. They are the type of people that do everything themselves. They cut their own lawn, they cut their own shrubs and bushes. They paint their own homes. They do things inside the house such as repair the grout in their bathroom, or they repair their kitchen cabinets, or they paint the interior or exterior of their homes.
I’m not that talented. I envy people like that because I’m not a do it yourselfer, I’m not good at that. But they believe that they can do anything because they are a do it yourselfer.
Now when it comes to DCF they think they can do they DCF case too on their own. They are unprepared and therefore they are unsuccessful. And after the fact they wonder why they failed. When you fail to prepare, you prepare to fail. And I’ve had, I can’t tell you how many clients come into my office.
I recently had John and Jane come into my office and told me how they recently had an investigation and how the investigation didn’t go well. What they did, is they yapped, and yapped, and yapped and I call that diarrhea of the mouth. They filled up all types of silence with talk. And they didn’t try to listen to the type of questions being asked and they just kept trying to sell themselves to the DCF, which is the wrong way to go about things.
They also allowed their children to be interviewed alone with DCF. Another huge mistake and they knew it after they got the reports back, and it was apparently clear what was going on. But they were do it yourselfers. They knew how to do it. They did not know how to do it themselves, they were wrong. They didn’t know what their legal rights are and if you do not know what your legal rights are, you have NO LEGAL rights. And they failed miserably. Now they’re in dark soup and they are involved with DCF.
DCF got them on the central registry as a perpetrator child abuse towards their children. They say it’s all false but because they were do it yourselfers they were unprepared and therefore they were unsuccessful.
The moral of today’s story is don’t be a do it yourselfer when it comes to DCF. If DCF knocks on your door, call me, call Attorney Seaver 617-263-2633. Again, call me, when DCF knocks on your door call kevin Seaver now at area code 617-263-2633. You and your children have constitutional rights and your children may be small but they’re not stupid. Do not allow them or yourself to be interviewed alone. Don’t be a do it yourself. Thank you.
