Child Endangerment & Dependency Cases in Colorado

Matters of child endangerment, dependency, and neglect usually begin when DHS receives a report from a teacher, doctor, neighbor, child care worker, or some other individual concerning a child’s suspected mistreatment. Even if these accusations turn out to be completely false, DHS will still likely send a representative to your home to investigate the claims. Depending on their findings, DHS may exercise its right to remove your child from your care and place them in the care of a relative, temporary foster home, or group home.

A child may be removed for any of the following reasons:

  • There is evidence the child is being abused or neglected
  • There is evidence of domestic violence
  • The parents have a history of drug or alcohol abuse
  • The child’s living conditions are unsanitary or dangerous

If a parent’s level of care is deemed unfit, the child will be removed from the home and a dependency and neglect petition will be filed with the court. In severe cases, DHS may also commence court actions to terminate your rights as a parent. If your child has been removed from your home or if you fear DHS may seek to take your children from you, our attorney can work to safeguard your rights during this challenging time.
