Defending Those In The Twin Cities Accused Of Abuse And Neglect
Allegations of child abuse and neglect can be devastating for both the individual accused as well as his or her family. We understand that individuals facing such allegations are afraid and need great assistance. At Groshek Law PA, we not only offer legal counsel, but we also advise you on how to comply with the state’s requests for information, interviews and all other requirements.
When you hire the Groshek Law PA team, you get three lawyers who are skilled at providing aggressive representation to mothers, fathers, foster parents, and children aged 10 and 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. We know how to litigate these cases and reveal when the state cannot prove the child protection petition. We are 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.
How Long Do I Have To Develop A Comprehensive Child Protection Plan In Minnesota?
The goal of Child Protection is to prevent any further instances of abuse and neglect. 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. 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.
What Can Groshek Law Do To Help With Our Child Protection Case?
Our team of lawyers will work with you and Child Protection to develop a comprehensive case plan to reunite your family. We will guide you so that you understand how to work with social workers in charge of investigating your case. We will also help you request a reconsideration of a social worker’s determination of maltreatment, if necessary. 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.
