DHS is a Philadelphia agency that is empowered to investigate allegations of child abuse. CYS is the the equivalent agency that operates in the surrounding counties to Philadelphia. They have a duty to investigate every claim no matter whether is has merit or is completely false. DHS or CYS has the authority to immediately remove a child from your home if they believe that the child is in danger. They also have the authority to place the child in foster care by filing with the Court to have that child deemed as "Dependent". Although DHS's and CYS' goal is to reunite a children with their parents, if that goal is not met a child can be eventually placed for adoption with a foster family.
Our law firm has witnessed dozens of parents who have pending custody cases make false reports in an attempt to leverage their custody rights against the other parent. Many of these reports result in allegations being unfounded. However, some reports result in allegations being founded and the parent's custodial rights being compromised and even terminated by adoption.
One may think "If I am innocent, I have nothing to worry about." However the system is imperfect. Mistakes are made. Caseworkers may believe one parent over another. Other influences or factors may have an impact in to the final decision made by the investigative caseworker which is entered in to a written report.
It is wise to have legal counsel early in the case to defend a parent who is the subject of a DHS or CYS investigation. Once an adjudication by the Court is made, it is far more difficult to reverse a decision made by a Judge. Affordable Legal Center's Attorneys have experience in defending false allegations. Parents have legal rights but are better served having competent representation to enforce them.
Affordable Legal Center's Attorneys take every DHS or CYS investigation very seriously carefully listening to the facts in each case. They defend their clients vigorously by building defenses, monitoring the investigation, attending DHS or CYS meetings, making Court appearances, filing defensive legal pleadings, and advocating for their clients at every stage.
