Juvenile Dependency Attorney in Boca Raton & Palm Beach

The Law Offices of Peter Perettine has extensive experience in dealing with Juvenile Dependency cases throughout the South Florida region. Our office will provide representation beginning with the shelter hearing and continuing through arraignment, status, mediation, and if necessary trial.

Dealing with the Department of Children and Family Services (DCF) can be an intimidating and daunting experience. If you have been contacted by DCF concerning a neglect or abuse allegation involving one of your children, we are available to answer any questions you may have on a 24-hour as needed basis. If your case is at the investigative stage and a petition for dependency has not been filed, we are available to represent you in dealing with the appointed DCF investigator.

Whether your case is eventually resolved by negotiation or trial, our office and attorney is prepared to be with you every step of the way. If the allegations in your dependency petition are false, we are prepared to present your side of any situation and not take verbatim what DCF has alleged.
