Neglected and Abused Children
Child Neglect Attorney Franklin, Williamson County Tennessee
Drug addicted parents often cannot take care of their children and allow them to live in an unhealthy and unsafe environment. In other situations, the physical or mental health of a parent may deteriorate to a point where proper parenting cannot occur. This often occurs without malicious intent, but it still has a negative impact on the child. In these dangerous situations, it is the responsibility of the child or children's other parent, grandparents and other family members to step in and help this child. If you are aware of a child who is living in neglect, first contact the Department of Children's Services or DCS at the child abuse and neglect hotline at 1-877-237-0004. You may also report online at https://reportabuse.state.tn.us/. In an emergency, always first call 911 and notify them of the situation. After having done these, you may wish to hire a lawyer to help guide you through the process. An attorney familiar with the Juvenile Court in the County where the child lives can immediately ask the Court for an Emergency Temporary Restraining Order to remove the child or children from the dangerous environment.
