The Department of Children and Familes Litigation

Connecticut families involved in Department of Children and Families (DCF)
litigation often fail to appreciate the seriousness of a DCF investigation until it is too late.

The experienced family law attorneys at the Zeck Law Offices have handled child protection and DCF litigation, and we provide clients with the chance for a positive outcome. Contact a Zeck Law Offices child protection services
lawyer at our firm today.

For approximately fifteen years Mark R. Zeck of the Zeck Law Offices has
devoted a large portion of his practice to issues concerning childĀ endangerment and the protection of children. We use our extensive knowledge of Child Protective Services and the juvenile court systems to represent children and parents in abuse and neglect cases filed by the State.

Whether supported by evidence or simply the product of an unfounded
accusation, The Department of Children and Families (DCF) is required to
investigate reports of child abuse or neglect to protect children. Connecticut
state law requires any person who believes that a child has been abused or
neglected to make a report to DCF or to a law enforcement agency.

No Time to Lose: The DCF Case

Parents, grandparents, and foster parents must act quickly to protect their rights and those of their children. While it is always a good idea to cooperate with DCF, it is important to remember that DCF is represented by the Office of The Attorney General and that any child or children involved in an investigation will be represented by a Guardian Ad Litem.
