C.D. was shockingly accused of abusing his minor daughter and wife. An investigator from DCP&P
unexpectedly visited his home on two occasions to interrogate his family. C.D. openly spoke to the investigator and complied with his demands in hopes that the Division would go away, however, following the second visit, it was clear to C.D. that the Division was likely going to proceed to Court. As a result, he contacted our office for assistance.
Upon speaking to C.D., we discovered that there were two reported instances of domestic violence where the police were contacted and criminal charges were brought. We also found that DCP&P was contacted again by his daughter’s school due to a teacher being told that there was abuse occurring in the home. Consequently, we advised C.D. to stop speaking to DCP&P investigators and cooperating with the Division as our office will take care of the case from there.
We immediately spoke to DCP&P’s attorney and forwarded her several documents depicting several crucial details. We showed her that the criminal mattes were all dismissed and were merely being filed by his wife to retaliate against him in light of marital issues. We also forwarded a risk assessment evaluation to show that C.D. did not present a risk to his family and was more than capable of safely caring for his daughter.
