Defending Those Accused Of Abuse And Neglect In Minnesota

Allegations of child abuse and neglect can be devastating for the individual accused and his or her family. Attorney Christa Groshek understands that individuals facing such allegations are afraid and in need of assistance. Christa not only offers legal counsel, but she also advises her clients on how to comply with the state's requests for information, interviews and all other requirements.

Experienced And Aggressive Representation Of Your Rights In Child Protection Court

When facing allegations of child abuse and neglect, it is imperative that you obtain the services of a Minneapolis criminal attorney who understands the state's procedures and requirements. Additionally, it is just as important to have a lawyer by your side who will thoroughly investigate the allegations and fight to protect your rights.

Christa Groshek has years of experience working with the state of Minnesota. She understands its procedures and requirements, and she meticulously reviews allegations and evidence in order to give her clients the best possible chance of success in their criminal defense cases.

If you are facing allegations of child abuse or neglect, please call a child protection court lawyer at Groshek Law at 612-424-5829 to schedule a consultation.

Christa Groshek provides aggressive representation to foster parents, mothers, fathers and children who are 10 years of age or older in cases involving:

  • Shaken babies
  • Failure to thrive
  • Child pornography in the home
  • Children being in the home when domestic abuse occurs
  • Children whose parents are struggling with alcohol or drug addiction

Many of these cases go to trial because of false allegations. Christa knows how to litigate these cases and show that the state cannot prove the child protection petition. She is also able to file private termination petitions where a family can no longer maintain custody of a child because they are dangerous or mentally ill.

Comprehensive And Dedicated Representation

The goal of Child Protection is to prevent any further instances of abuse and neglect. Christa will work with you and Child Protection to develop a comprehensive case plan to reunite your family.

  • If your child is under the age of eight, you have six months to resolve any matters raised by Child Protection.
  • For children over the age of eight, you have one year to resolve such matters.
  • Christa will guide you so that you understand how to work with social workers in charge of investigating your case.
  • She will also help you request a reconsideration of a social worker's determination of maltreatment, if necessary.

The county may attempt to terminate parental rights if the conditions that led to the initial out-of-home placement are not remedied or if there is egregious harm alleged. If reunification is not an option, Christa will work hard to find a placement within the family so there is less transition for the children.
