Child Protection/DCF

Child protection cases involving the Connecticut Department for Children and Families (DCF) can have a devastating impact on the relationship you have with your children. The DCF has authority to investigate if there has been abuse or neglect of your child. Ultimately, the DCF could remove your child from your home if they suspect abuse has occurred. And if there are findings of abuse, the DCF can then take legal action for restraining orders and protective orders. Such orders may limit or prevent any contact you may have with the child.
