Having Colorado’s protective services involved in your life can be a nightmare from which it’s nearly impossible to escape.
In many instances, caseworkers are so afraid of making a mistake that they drag families through the mud regardless of proof. In other cases, caseworkers are inept or vindictive, leaving a parent facing an allegation of neglect or abuse unable to extricate themselves from the bureaucracy.
Colorado’s Mandatory Child Abuse Reporting law requires that health care officials, schools, police officers, and other officials report suspected child abuse. The Colorado Department of Human Services continues to report a growing caseload, with more than 81,000 reports in 2012.

Dealing with a state or federal bureaucracy is always a challenge. But when your children are involved, emotions can run high. Allegations of sexual or physical abuse occur during a divorce or contentious child custody battle. Too often, a parent’s rights are trampled during an investigation.
At the Law Office of Andres R. Guevara, we believe the best defense is an aggressive offense. Frequently, it is easier to resolve these cases if quick action is taken–rather than waiting to reverse an abuse finding or seek a child’s return from a placement outside the home.
That’s why it’s important to contact a Denver, CO child welfare defense lawyer as soon as possible.
