Family Law Attorney David Hurvitz, PA in Tampa FL

Dependancy Law

One of the most fundamental rights in this great Country is the rights of parents to raise their children free from governmental interference. However, beyond that fundamental liberty interest is the rights of all children to live in a safe and healthy environment free from abuse, neglect, or abandonment. There are times where the Florida Department of Children and Family Services step in to investigate allegations of abuse, neglect, or abandonment, and the results of that investigation may be that the children are removed from the home and contact with their parent may be limited. When this happens, you need a skilled juvenile dependency lawyer working on your behalf.

Unlike other types family law cases,
Dependency and TPR cases are not routine child custody cases. In Dependency and TPR cases, children may be removed from the home because of abuse, neglect or abandonment issues, and contact between children and their parents can be limited or blocked entirely by Court Order. Most always the State of Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF) is the entity that opposes the parents from reuniting with their children, and said entity is usually the entity that plays the “opposing counsel” role against the parents with respect to their parental rights.
