Lake County DCF Lawyer

The Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF) goes to great lengths to investigate allegations of child abuse, neglect or abandonment. In addition, Florida law requires certain individuals to report suspected child abuse, neglect or abandonment. As a result, many good, caring, parents face severe, life-changing accusations. If the DCF has taken your child away from you, you need a lawyer immediately. It is critical to hire a lawyer who understands DCF cases and the specific legal procedures that are involved.

I am Lake County DCF attorney Robyn Hudson. From my office in Tavares, my law firm serves parents across Lake County and Sumter County. I understand that the outcome of your case will have a major impact on your relationship with your children. You can depend on me to provide aggressive representation aimed at helping you achieve the best available outcome.

Working Tirelessly To Protect Your Rights Throughout The Legal Process

If your child has been removed from your home, you have the right to a hearing within 24 hours. This hearing, known as a "shelter hearing" will determine whether the DCF has enough evidence to keep your child. The sooner you get my law firm involved in your case, the more we can do in your case.

Leesburg Child Dependency Attorney

Even if a judge rules in favor of the DCF at the shelter hearing, it does not mean that your parental rights will be terminated. You will still have the right to another hearing before a judge, known as a dependency hearing. In many cases, I am able to seek a positive outcome through negotiations with the DCF. Of course, if we have to argue your case before a judge, I will be ready to do so. Over my career I have represented parents facing all types of accusations, including:

  • Domestic violence
  • Drug use
  • Physical abuse (excessive corporal punishment)
  • Mental health issues
  • Sexual abuse

Any case involving a person's alleged fitness to be a mother or father is going to be an emotional event; I understand this. When you work with my law firm, you can count on me to answer your questions and give you the attention you need during a very hard time. At the same time, you can rely on me to do everything in my power to help you reunite with your family.
