If you are a parent or family member of a child involved in a proceeding initiated through Georgia’s Department of Family and Children Services (DFCAS), you want an aggressive attorney to protect your rights. DFACS (also know as DEFACS or DFCS) cases can be long and drawn out, requiring extensive evidence, as well as testimony from counselors and experts. Without assertive representation, these proceedings can be extremely costly, in terms of both time and expense.
At Bradford Primm & Green, we aggressively protect the rights of men and women in family law matters, including Department of Family and Children Services proceedings. Because we understand the importance of getting prompt responses to your questions and concerns, we attend all citizens review panels. Though we have considerable experience in the courtroom, we will never take your case to trial at your expense. When appropriate, we will make every effort to save you time and money by resolving your differences through negotiation. When it is necessary however, our attorneys prepared to fight aggressively in court for your children’s rights and your rights.
Protecting Your Rights in DFACS Matters
Our attorneys represent parents or children in deprivation hearings involving allegations of danger to minor children. These hearings always take place after a child has been removed from the home or the care of a parent or legal guardian. Whenever possible, our goal will always be to reunite the minor child with his or her parent or family member or to intervene on behalf of a concerned family member to ensure the safety of the child.
If you are a parent seeking the return of your child in a DFACS proceeding, we will work closely with you to identify the issues set forth by the Department of Family and Children Services. We will handle all legal matters in your attempt to protect your children, but we can also help you get into any necessary programs to help resolve the initial problem, including substance abuse, anger management or parenting classes. We will help you develop a strategy to address the DFACS concerns, so that you eliminate the risk of losing your children again.
