When Family Gets Criminal: The Intersection of DCF, Family Law & Criminal Law

Tuesday, February 27, 2018 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


This program will focus on the intersection and interplay between DCF, Family Law and Criminal Law. In addition to providing a broad overview of how DCF conducts abuse and neglect investigations, the panelists will discuss how DCF interacts with the court with respect to the review of records and testimony under the Brantley and Dwyer protocols. The panelists will also touch on the implication of asserting the 5th Amendment privilege in such investigations, and the impact of such an assertion, as well as the effects of a party’s withdrawal of criminal allegations following DCFs involvement in a matter.
