The last thing in the world you want to happen is to lose custody of your children. But when a dependency and neglect petition is filed against you, this is exactly what can happen.

In Colorado, the child welfare laws require that police and other law enforcement officials as well as many different types of professionals, like teachers and child care workers, must report suspicions (however slight) of child abuse or child neglect.
The people in this position are called “mandatory reporters.” That means that if they fail to report suspicions of child abuse or neglect, they can be criminally prosecuted, fined, or jailed. They may also lose their jobs and professional licenses. So with the fear of these serious consequences and frequently lacking information, mandatory reporters can often be overzealous in their reporting.
After a report is filed with your county department of human services, they will investigate the allegations of child abuse or child neglect. After the investigation is complete, if they believe the allegations are true, the county department of human services will file a petition of dependency and neglect in juvenile district court, usually where your children live, or where the allegations of child abuse or neglect occurred.
Dependency and neglect proceedings can be very complicated. That’s why you need an experienced Denver child neglect attorney to protect the needs of your children, as well as your parental rights. You need to know what you are up against and how best to fight against it.
