Dependency and Neglect

Dependency and Neglect charges are serious and can result in your children being removed from your home so it is important to get a lawyer.  Having an experienced private attorney will ensure your parental rights are protected every step of the way.  For more than 20 years I have represented all participants including the Department of Human Services, children, parents and other interested parties. With my experience in the D&N system, I am qualified to represent parents facing child dependency and neglect allegations. When the loss of your child is on the line, it’s critical that you have a dedicated attorney representing you through this complicated process.  I will guide you through the entire legal system ensuring that you understand the process and work hard at making positive changes in your family for the benefit of the children’s best interests and safety.

In the state of Colorado a child is considered DEPENDENT or NEGLECTED when:

  • A parent or guardian abandons, mistreats, or abuses the child.
  • A parent or guardian allows another person to mistreat or abuse the child or does not take steps to stop the abuse or prevent it from happening again.
  • The child lacks proper care throughout the actions or inactions of the parent or guardian.
  • The child’s environment is unsafe.
  • The parent or guardian does not provide the child with necessary education or medical care.
  • The child is homeless or without care through no fault of the parent or guardian.
  • The child has run away from home or is beyond the control of the parent or guardian.
