Can DCFS take my child without a court order?

Can DCFS take my child without a court order?

This is a very common question. DCFS can only take your child if there is a court order or if you have abused or neglected your child. I’ve actually never seen it happen that DCFS took a child with out a court order.

I’ve heard things like: “I know that DCFS is saying that they are moving to protect my child, and they mean well, but I don’t understand why they would make this decision without involving me in the process. I have been working with the DCFS agency for over a year now, and I have done everything that was asked of me.”

What about my rights as a parent? Can the state come in and separate a family without going to court? What if I disagree with the decision? Is there any way I can stop them from taking my child?

Your next best step is to get a DCFS attorney on your side.

About the Author

People who want a lot of Bull go to a Butcher. People who want results navigating a complex legal field go to a Lawyer that they can trust. That’s where I come in. I am Michael Anderson, an Attorney in the Salt Lake area focusing on the needs of the Average Joe wanting a better life for him and his family. I’m the Lawyer you can trust. I grew up in Utah and love it here. I am a Father to three, a Husband to one, and an Entrepreneur. I understand the feelings of joy each of those roles bring, and I understand the feeling of disappointment, fear, and regret when things go wrong. I attended the University of Utah where I received a B.A. degree in 2010 and a J.D. in 2014. I have focused my practice in Wills, Trusts, Real Estate, and Business Law. I love the thrill of helping clients secure their future, leaving a real legacy to their children. Unfortunately when problems arise with families. I also practice Family Law, with a focus on keeping relationships between the soon to be Ex’s civil for the benefit of their children and allowing both to walk away quickly with their heads held high. Before you worry too much about losing everything that you have worked for, before you permit yourself to be bullied by your soon to be ex, before you shed one more tear in silence, call me. I’m the Lawyer you can trust.
