Having a law enforcement agent come to your house or to your child’s school, unannounced, to remove your child (or children) from the home are frightening events. Juvenile court referees available on call can authorize such removals, and by law, a removal hearing must be held within 24 hours. At times such as these, you will need to know the following:
- Do I cooperate?
- What are my rights as parent?
- When should I look for legal assistance?
- How can I return my life to normal with as little disruption as possible?
If you or someone you know is experiencing a similar situation, you need to know your rights and you need to find help fast.
Mike Steinberg is a well-known family defense lawyer and has dedicated much of his career to ensuring that parents are properly represented. Did you know that under current law, parents can be subject to legal proceedings for the wrongdoings of their spouses or live in partners? They can even be subject to a parent-agency agreement, which are conditions placed by a court that, if not followed, could result in the termination of their parental rights. During such crucial times, parents need help protecting their rights.
As a family defense lawyer, Mike Steinberg has vast experience in successfully defending parents in cases where a partner has been accused of wrongdoing. If a child or children have been removed from the home, Mike works diligently to have the child returned as quickly as possible.
