The Department of Communities and Justice (“DCJ”) operates to keep children safe from harm, and may become involved with your family if they suspect a child is at risk of being harmed. To us, it is of the utmost importance that we help families through these difficult times. If your family is experiencing hardship, DCJ might become involved with your family to ensure that your children are safe from harm.
We understand that some families are particularly vulnerable and may be experiencing any of the following factors: homelessness, family violence, sexual abuse, divorce and separation, financial hardship and poverty, gambling, mental health issues, familial death or ill health, illicit drug use and alcoholism.
If this sounds like you or members of your family, it is most important to act protectively of the children who DCJ allege have been harmed or at risk of harm. It is also critical that you seek immediate legal advice from a solicitor, we can give you expert advice about what to do next. If you are already involved in children’s court matters and need a solicitor to represent you, our children’s court lawyers can provide you with advice about having contact with your children and meeting your restoration goals.
