Helping Defend Parents In Colorado Dependency And Neglect Cases

As a parent, there is nothing more important to you than your child’s health and safety. When accusations arise questioning your fitness as a parent, it can seem like there is no one on your side to stand up for you. Facing the potential loss of your child because of these allegations means you need to take these matters seriously.

Once these accusations are made, they do not just go away. You will most likely find yourself facing an extensive investigation that gets into many different aspects of your life. You need the experienced lawyers at GEM Family Law to help you protect yourself as your case moves forward.

What Happens When Abuse Or Neglect Is Alleged

No matter your role, this process can be time-consuming, complicated and overwhelming.

Perhaps it is not even clear to you why the Department of Human Services is focused on intervention with your family.
