Proper representation is very helpful when dealing with the DFC

It would be wonderful if old TV shows like "The Brady Bunch" or "Growing Pains" were accurate portraits of family life. On those shows, problems were always small and solved before the closing credits. But unfortunately, families often lead complicated lives and sometimes mothers or fathers have serious personal issues. And if these issues are serious enough in nature, they may attract the attention of the Florida Department of Children and Families.

Having a child taken by the authorities can be extremely traumatic for both the child and his or her parents. And while sometimes such a dramatic move is called for, there can also be times when the child is better off in the care of his or her parents or another family member. But once the child is a part of the DFC system, it can be a fight to get him or her back home.

If you are trying to regain or gain custody of a child who has been taken by the DFC, you will have to appear in Juvenile Dependency Court to attend a child welfare hearing. Your goal at this hearing is to demonstrate that it is in the child's best interests to be released back into your custody. But depending on the perceived severity of your circumstances, this could be a difficult task.

At The Law Office of Amy L. Beauchaine, we understand the challenges faced by our clients who are seeking the return of their children. We can help you show the court that you can provide your child with a safe and stable home environment. We would be very interested in discussing your situation and offer our assessment of your best possible options. Please feel free to contact us at your earliest convenience.
