Has an ex-partner, neighbor, family member, teacher, or someone else who’s been in contact with your children complained about you to the DHR?

Did the DHR show up at your home unannounced demanding that you take a drug test or allow them into your home for an inspection? While the Alabama Department of Human Resources (DHR) says their goal is to protect the well-being of children and other individuals, their limited resources and their big government approach can mistake good parents for negligent ones, and often treats all cases the same despite every family being different and having individual needs. It’s imperative that you are aware of your constitutional rights as a parent if the DHR approaches you.

If you’ve been contacted by a socal worker from the DHR because of a report for child abuse, you need to get help from one of our experienced Athens DHR lawyers who will advocate for your parental rights and create a strategy to help you reach the best possible outcome. Call today to request a consultation and learn about legal options, rights, and responsibilities.

Why Should I Work With An Athens DHR Lawyer?

Navigating interactions with Alabama Department of Human Resources can be hard to do on your own. The DHR has been known to use fear-based tactics to scare parents into compliance, and they have no legal obligation to inform you of your rights, making it difficult for you to understand what you’re legally required to do for them. It’s in your best interest to have one of our skilled Athens DHR lawyers on your side to ensure you’re aware of your parental rights and responsibilities when it comes to any allegations of child abuse or neglect. Having seasoned legal representation can make the difference between successfully navigating the intimidating landscape of dealing with the Department of Human Resources, and facing possible consequences for the alleged abuse.

Though you are not legally required to work with a DHR lawyer, it can offer you a significant advantage in safeguarding your rights and shielding your family from the chaos. In addition to a legal strategy tailored to your unique circumstances, we can also help with…

  • Evaluating your case to identify the strengths as well as potential pitfalls that may prevent you from reaching a favorable result.
  • Preparing any necessary documentation.
  • Negotiating with the DHR to reach solutions that are in the best interest of your children.
  • Ensure that any action taken against you by the DHR is legal.
  • Represent you in hearings and court proceedings.
  • Offer you legal and emotional support.
  • Help you avoid making mistakes that could compromise the result of your case.
  • And more!
