Has someone in your child’s life filed a complaint against you to the DHR? It could be someone who means well and is just looking out for your child as best they know how, like a teacher or neighbor, or it could be someone who wants to spite you, like an ex. Either way, even though the Alabama Department of Human Resources (DHR) says that their purpose is to protect the well-being of children and other individuals, their corporate approach in doing so can be harmful to good parents who’ve been wrongfully marked as negligent ones. It’s crucial that you are aware of your constitutional rights as a parent in the event that the DHR approaches you.

You don’t deserve to be treated like a bad parent and have your capabilities questioned by the DHR. Your kids are legally yours to raise! If you’ve been contacted by a social worker due to a report of child abuse or neglect, you need to seek the assistance of our Decatur DHR lawyers as soon as possible. We will protect your parental rights and advocate for the best interests of you and your children. Call Foxtrot Family Law today to request a consultation and learn about your next steps.

How Our Decatur DHR Lawyer Can Help

Dealing with the Alabama Department of Human Resources can be intimidating to do on your own. They are well-known for the fear-based tactics they use to frighten parents into complying with things that you do not have to allow them to do. For instance, the DHR cannot make you take a drug test, or enter your home without a court order. You actually don’t even have to speak to them if you don’t want to. However, it’s important to understand the consequences that can come as a result of standing up to them.

Our skilled Decatur DHR lawyers can help with that and so much more. We will take the time to do what the DHR won’t do, which is inform you of your parental rights and responsibilities when it comes to allegations of child abuse or neglect.
