Your Advocates When The DCF Comes Calling

Few people who have had interactions with the Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF) have been able to successfully handle the matter on their own. Many people mistakenly believe that they can simply tell their “side of the story” and their children will not be taken or their children will be returned to them. Unfortunately, for those who are not experienced in dealing with the DCF, it can be very difficult to predict what will help you and what will make your situation worse.

Having a lawyer experienced in dealing with the DCF to help guide you, and fight for your rights and your family, is the most effective means of maintaining or reinstating the integrity of your family.

How Our Firm Can Help

At The Holman Law Firm, our family law attorneys understand how the DCF operates and what is most likely to be successful in dealing with them. Our extensive experience with such child-related issues allows us to help clients protect their families’ rights and to reunite parents with their children. We can help with all DCF issues from emergency shelter hearings to the development of plans designed to deal with issues in the home such as:

  • Drug abuse
  • Alcohol abuse
  • Physical abuse
  • Mental health issues

When the DCF is trying to address such issues a “case plan” will generally be completed before children will be returned to their parent(s). We will work to ensure that any case plan that is developed is one that takes the particular needs of your families’ situation into consideration.
