Dependency & Neglect/Child Abuse & Neglect
Numerous situations arise in which parents’ relationships with their children are threatened. If you have been contacted by social services or if you worry that your child is subject to abuse or neglect, it is important to secure legal representation as soon as possible.
At Jolein A. Harro, P.C., we work diligently to defend and support our clients. Our primary goal is to protect the bond between parents and their children. We also know that parents need compassion and empathy when they are going through a difficult time, so we ensure that our clients are counseled and supported.
Our attorneys have 60 years of combined experience. Over the course of our careers, we have handled virtually all matters related to child dependency, abuse and neglect. We handle emergency orders and cases involving foster care or kinship placement.
A Guardian at litem is often appointed to represent the best interests of the child in these challenging cases; we can help you interact with a guardian ad litem and other professionals to achieve the best possible results.
We handle cases involving many different allegations, including:
- Mistreatment, physical abuse or sexual abuse
- Threats of physical or sexual abuse
- Drug abuse that puts the children in danger
- Mental illness/mental health issues
Cases Involving Out-Of-Control Children
An out-of-control child may refuse to follow parents’ rules in a family. These children, usually teens, often skip school, run away, or become engaged in other negative behaviors. Social services may become involved, so it is important for parents to reach out to an attorney who can protect their rights.
