Protecting Your Rights In Child Abuse And CHIPS Matters

Maintaining a strong parent-child relationship can be demanding in today's culture. When the government steps in to ask questions about how an individual is parenting, the potential consequences can be harsh. Allegations of child abuse or neglect can lead to a range of potential consequences. Not all allegations seem fair.

Disputes between parents, misperceptions of individuals about an event and other situations may arise that turn into an investigation. Investigations into potential child abuse may begin with law enforcement, through the Division of Milwaukee Child Protective Services (DMCPS) or both. DMCPS access workers often rely heavily on law enforcement investigators to develop a Child in Need of Protection or Services (CHIPS) proceeding.

At The Law Offices of Robert A. Levine in Milwaukee, we provide knowledgeable guidance and aggressive representation in cases involving child abuse and domestic violence, as well as the DMCPS process. Call 414-368-9100 for a free case evaluation and consultation. Se habla español.

In a DMCPS investigation, police and social workers are given authority to take a child into custody if authorities believe the child is in danger. If your child has been removed by social services or if you believe that officials are investigating allegations of abuse or neglect, it is critical for you to speak to a lawyer who has experience in this nuanced area of the law. With the potential for termination of parental rights, as well as possible charges of child abuse in criminal court on the horizon, there is no time to wait.

We have substantial experience representing men and women across the spectrum of criminal child abuse and CHIPS matters, including:

  • Unreasonable force in providing discipline
  • Child endangerment, including allegations involving addictions or drug offenses
  • Child abandonment
  • Child abuse
  • Child neglect
  • Domestic violence allegations

Our attorneys aggressively defend parents accused of child abuse or neglect in criminal court, as well as in CHIPS or termination of parental rights proceedings.
