Dependency And Neglect Cases

The Colorado Department of Human Services is a faceless, nameless entity. In dependency and neglect (D&N) proceedings, the department may order the removal of your children from your home or require supervised visits with your children.

If you are the target of a investigation, it is imperative that you talk to a lawyer as soon as possible.

There is hope: You may be in the fight of your life to maintain your parental rights. You need a passionate, committed attorney on your side. At Scardina Law, we can immediately step in and protect your rights. Call us at 303-502-5540.

Understanding Dependency and Neglect Proceedings

If a dependency and neglect petition has been filed against you, it is important to be aware of what may happen. A guardian ad litem is typically appointed to act on behalf of the child or children involved.

The guardian ad litem is required to act in the best interests of the child involved. However, their definition of “best interests of the child” may be drastically different from your definition. To ensure that your interests are protected throughout the proceedings, it is critical that you get a lawyer on your side.

Sibling attorneys Autumn and Todd Scardina are passionate advocates for the rights of parents. If your rights as a parent are being threatened, do not delay. These are time-sensitive cases, and you should act promptly to protect your relationship with your child.
