My girlfriend and friend was at the mall with my daughter who was 2 at the time and there was a ongoing DCF case that had recently been opened and they showed up to the mall and took my daughter from my girlfriends custody and they called my family to come take her into custody my family arrived but didn't have a car seat DCF told them that it was okay to let her ride in the front seat of the car on my moms lap.
Without evidence of an injury that resulted from this action a lawsuit would be futile.
answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship.
What are your damages? Unless the child was seriously injured, you don't really have an economically viable case. No attorney would take this case on a contingency basis. Unless you have a lot of money to spend on attorney's fees for no return.
I do not know the facts of your particular case, but I strongly recommend you contact DCF and file a formal complaint against this professional. I also recommend you consult with an attorney who has experience with cases against the department.
