What Do I Do If My Child Is Taken Away by Social Workers? How Do I Get My Child Back? Welfare & Institutions Code section 300

Having a child taken away from you can be the most traumatic experience in a parent’s life. Very often children are wrongly separated from a parent because of false allegations or overzealous and unreasonable social workers.

It is far too easy for your children to be taken away by county social workers. A false abuse allegation made out of spite after a heated argument can have devastating personal and legal consequences for you. Not only are you wrongly deprived of your child, but you may suffer the social stigma of being a suspected child abuser.

In addition if a social worker concludes that the allegation is “substantiated” or even “inconclusive” your name may be added to the Child Abuse Central Index. This is not an index where you will ever want your name to appear.

Though social workers may mean well, the nature of their training and their work means they are often inclined to believe that child abuse has taken place, even when the evidence to support the child abuse claim is very slim. In some cases social workers will decide to remove a child from your home before they even have had a chance to interview you about the allegations.

Once your child is removed from your custody, you may find yourself in the child dependency court fighting for your child to be returned to you. Dependency court judges place significant weight on social worker reports, even when the report relies on hearsay and speculation.
