ASSISTING CAREGIVERS, PROTECTING CHILDREN
Children often find themselves at the heart of family conflict—whether through divorce and separation or other difficult or traumatic experiences. When it comes to child welfare and child custody, the focus must always be on the well-being of the child.
When family circumstances are being investigated for possible abuse or neglect by a child protective services (DSS) agency, many questions can arise for parents, family members, caregivers, and service providers.
Even when family tensions do not involve the serious issues that trigger DSS involvement, high-conflict custody battles can still be damaging to children and their relationships with their caregivers. Whether advising a caregiver in a DSS-involved case, or attempting to resolve differences in a custody challenge between parents, our goal is always to reduce conflict for the benefit of the child and family.Tell Us About Your Case
