  1. Yes DCF can remove a child from your care for a variety of reasons. You need to retain private counsel for any DCF case. There are certain requirements in dependency actions and the government must be fought.

  2. The substance of the allegation is important to know. In order for an allegation to be sufficient, there would have to be some factual support. The factual support could be as little as testimony from someone that would be in a position to have knowledge. Your past alone is not sufficient but it can be combined with current credible allegations.
