Teachers, doctors and a number of other professionals are legally obligated to report to the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), also known as the CPS, what they interpret as signs of child abuse. A number of these reports are based on misinterpretations of stories as related by young children or common elements of childhood such as bruising from roughhousing.
When allegations of child abuse reach the DCFS they will begin an investigation if they feel the reports are credible. A key element of that investigation will be to conduct an interview with the child's parents.
If you have been contacted by DCFS so that they can interview you, you need to take proactive steps to protect yourself and your family. We do not recommend talking with DCFS social workers without the presence of an attorney who is familiar with their process.
