Family & Child Services Appeals

At times, incidents occur that cause your local child services to become involved in your family affairs. At times, caseworkers will make home visits, generate reports and clear your name. Other times, they may find that behavior or failure to act is considered “abuse or neglect” and may bring a petition against you in the family court.

Office of Child and Family Services – Fair Hearings: Where your local child services (ACS, CPS, OCFS) has found that, more likely than not, your action or inaction was a form of abuse or neglect, they may not bring a proceeding in family court. Rather, they may make a “finding” against you, which could show up in a background check as something called an “indication.” There are two ways to appeal this indication through a fair hearing. We are able to help you navigate this process
