Dependency Cases

As a parent, nothing is more important to you than the welfare of your children, and nothing is worse than being accused of causing them harm. If you are a parent or caregiver who is investigated by DCF, accused of abuse, abandonment or neglect, or whose child is sheltered by the Department of Children and Families, you should seek the counsel of an experienced lawyer without delay. The dependency lawyers at Risen & Ryan have the combined experience of more than 45 years fighting for the rights of parents at thousands of court hearings in in Northwest Florida, including Fort Walton Beach, Crestview, Destin, Navarre, Milton, and Pace.

If you are a concerned grandparent or relative of a child at risk, we can advise you too about what you can do to help your loved ones.
