bridge the gap

Dear Attorneys,


I don’t like how my soon-to-be-ex-wife is treating my kids when I’m not around. I want to call DCF on her, but my attorney told me not to. Why?



DCF Determined


Dear DCF Determined,


If you are unclear as to why your attorney advised you of something, you should have a conversation with your attorney. That said, we often advise clients not to involved DCF unnecessarily because it could complicate the situation, if there is a pending divorce or custody matter, it could delay it and, of course, if one party calls DCF on the other party, DCF will ultimately investigate both parties and sometimes, that could hurt a client’s case.  There may be other reasons that your attorney has given you that advice as well. Make sure you have open and clear communication with your attorney and then you can determine your next steps.
